Product Synopsis

This volume explains the scientific and simple wine tasting method created in 1995 by Luca Maroni. The method, shareable by anyone, is based on the logical principle that the 'Quality of a Wine equals the Pleasantness of its Taste.' It is not necessary to be a skilled sommelier to enjoy a glass of good wine and it is not true that only wine professionals can understand or describe excellent wines: as wines talk to senses anyone can hear and comprehend what they say. Curiosity, love for wine, passion and commitment drove Luca Maroni to the creation of the original tasting method explained. It is not by chance that he wrote the entry 'Wine Tasting' for the Italian Treccani Encyclopaedia: the plain reading of the method develops evaluation abilities of anyone. In the volume, together with the method, a few technical indications for wine tasters and a basic glossary of wine jargon are included.
