Italian Wine Podcast Episode 407: “Sangiovese, Lambrusco and Other Vine Stories” (La Stirpe del Vino) continues with Narrator Joy Livingston.

“When the Great Council chamber of the Serenissima opened its doors, the menu was structured on dozens and dozens of dishes inspired by the most refined gastronomic culture of the Mediterranean, including sweet-and-sour flavors of Byzantine origin and meat and fish exalted by the fragrances of the most distinctive spices.”

…And wines. Sweet, sweet wines. Including Marzemino.

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).
