Italian wine lovers are well acquainted with Brunello di Montalcino, the famous red wine hailing from Tuscany. But are you familiar with its complicated history and the leading Brunello producers? Kerin O’Keefe explores the nuances of this iconic wine in her new book Brunello di Montalcino: Understanding and Appreciating One of Italy’s Greatest Wines. Written as a guided tour through Montalcino’s geography, this fascinating and informative read navigates Brunello’s history, from its rapid popularity to the grape-blending scandal dubbed “Brunellogate.” This book is a great gift for that person in your life who simply can’t get enough of Italy and its wine, or a wonderful investment if you’re planning a trip to Tuscany soon.  Brunello di Montalcino by Kerin O’Keefe is available in stores and online for $40 in hardcover.
