Gambero Rosso produces one of the best Italian wine guide available in English language. Helping you find your way through Italy's 20 regions, the Gambero Rosso wine guide team has tasted something like 40'000 Italian wines last year. 2350 producers have made it into the final edition of the 2013 guide and 399 wines have received the tre bicchieri award (standing for the three glasses reflecting the maximum score available). As in every year Piedmont is the region on top of the list with 75 wines receiving the prime award, closely followed by the 68 tree bicchieri wines in Tuscany (Veneto comes in third with 36 wines).   

It's the producer of those 399 tre bicchieri wines that are invited to join the events the Gambero Rosso editors organize in the US, Europe and Asia to present the Italian Wines guide to the wine world.

Access to the tasting is in some occasions exclusive to retailers, wine pros and foodie journalists (in Germany tickets are also available for wine lovers). In case you don't belong to any of the above, just get a copy of the bible of Italian wine online and take it along to your next shopping spree or trip to Italy (it's also available on kindle, which comes in handy in the later). The English translation of the Gambero Rosso guide has been released this January (see link below for amazon store).
