Above: what grape is that? The Italian agriculture ministry’s online ampelographic catalog is a great resource for identifying grape varieties.
Posting on the fly this morning as I head out to NYC for work meetings and some incredible tastings tonight and tomorrow.
But I just had to share the link for the Italian agriculture ministry’s online ampelographic catalog, which I discovered yesterday researching my update of my Glossary of Italian Wine Terms.
I’m not sure how long the catalog has been available online and I haven’t had a chance to spend a lot of time poking around in there. But I’ve been impressed by its thoroughness and especially by the number of photos of bunches and leaves that it includes for each entry.
Now it’s time to get my butt to the airport and on a plane. Wish me speed!
