Sangiovese, Lambrusco, and Other Vine Stories is a series of most exciting real stories about grapes travelling and transforming landscapes.
If you are interested in a few hours of intellectual enjoyment, reading Sangiovese, Lambrusco, and Other Vine Stories is just what you need. In this book, Prof. Attilio Scienza and Researcher Serena Imazio share with us the history of peoples who worked the land, transformed the landscape, produced and traded wine, thus forging local and global communities.
Using DNA analysis, archeology, anthropology, myth, and literary sources, the authors reconstruct the lineage of wine. Sweeping in its scope, but retaining the intimacy of a personal anecdote, Lambrusco, Sangiovese, and Other Vine Stories illuminates the complex interaction between human communities and vines, in a journey which will reveal riveting stories of migration, conquest, exploration, and cross-cultural exchange. This book is a must for anyone who would seek to truly know Italian wine.

“Attilio Scienza and Serena Imazio share with us a series of most exciting real stories about grapes travelling and transforming landscapes. Their angle—solidly based upon science and knowledge, with as much global perspective as depth—is unique. They are like this book’s grapes, well traveled and exceptional. Thank you for these hours of intellectual enjoyment!”

“For decades, Attilio Scienza has stimulated and energized the production sector of the agronomic and enological world. I don’t think we would have reached today’s results without his scientific commitment. Even now, every time I meet him, I always feel the excitement and reverence of a student. Thank you Professor Scienza!”
