Play • 1 hr 26 min

Alessandro Masnaghetti is the editor of Enogea, a wine newsletter that has published several groundbreaking maps of wine regions.

Alessandro discusses how he went from nuclear engineer to mapman, and the influence that Italian wine journalist Luigi Veronelli had on his career. He also talks about Beppe Colla, a key figure in the history of the Piemonte, and discusses the rationale for focusing on specific crus from that region. And Alessandro gives some well thought out advice to those looking to better understand the crus of Barolo and Barbaresco.
