From Tuscany’s internationally adored Brunello di Montalcino to a little corner of Friuli that Merlot has made home, our latest issue continues to explore the enological treasures of the peninsula…

The latest issue of Slow Wine Magazine is now available online. The sixth issue takes a look at one of the day’s legends: Brunello di Montalcino 2010. Many consider it to be the vintage of the century, but are they all really that good? And what are the secrets behind this internationally celebrated appellation?


But we don’t stop just with members of the nobility, our New Frontiers section take us to the Euganean Hills, a corner of Veneto a few kilometers from Venice that has produced some enological gems.


Our Retrospective section this issue is dedicated to the one of the most enigmatic Italian reds. Adored by many and criticized by some for its excessive harshness, tasting Sagrantino di Montefalco years on was a truly unique experience.


And finally, who ever said that the great Italian reds are only made from indigenous grapes? We put one of the most long-living Merlots to the test. See what we thought in our Vistorta vertical tasting notes.


Fifty-three pages, four maps and 160 wines tasting notes divided into simple and easy top lists. You can access the magazine in printable PDF format or online to fully experience the stunning photography and graphics.
