    Ep. 422 Sangiovese Lambrusco... | Sangiovese!

    Italian Wine Podcast Episode 422: "Sangiovese, Lambrusco and Other Vine Stories" (La Stirpe del Vino) continues with Narrator Joy Livingston.

    Finally! We arrive at the book's namesake - Sangiovese!

    If you're wondering about the vine's origins you could study up on Bartolomeo Bimbi or Cosimo Trinci...

    Thankfully, Scienza and Imazio have already done the heavy lifting and summarized their findings in their book.

    This is the English language version of the original Italian book, "La Stirpe del Vino," written by Attilio Scienza and Serena Imazio.

    Get to know the vines that produce the grapes used to make the wine you love, like you've never seen them before.

    "Sangiovese, Lambrusco and Other Vine Stories" is available from Amazon (Kindle format) and positivepress.net (paperback).

Love Monty’s personality and of course Italian Wine

Monty’s personality is fantastic. Funny, very knowledgeable. He’s very witty with the all winemakers or owners of the vineyard that makes the interview so engaging. This is fantastic listen! If you love wine and like a little humor on a dry topic ;) you will absolutely love this, especially if you love Italian wine!

Insightful and entertaining

Informative and nuanced, Monty approaches each interview with a keen interest in showcasing the best producers that articulate the special qualities of each regional wine found throughout Italy. Truly unique and a must listen for anyone interested in furthering their Italian wine knowledge.

Covering the Italian Wine Landscape

The relaxed interview style of Monty Waldin with individuals across the spectrum of the industry from producers to communicators provides great information to those looking to learn more about Italian wine. The podcaster makes Italian wine more accessible to an English speaking audience by explaining the terms/colloquiums of some interviewees who are ESL speakers. Cin Cin!!!
