I am looking for some good literature on South America and came across Descorcahdos. It's seems to be a pretty authoritative book on the area but I am really wondering what the balance between tasting notes and general information is. I am more interested in specific history, geography and producer profiles than any given vintage notes.
Anyone who has read it that can explain a bit more?
I recently took my certified qualification with the CMS to give you and idea of where I am at.
Hi, Cary i used the descorchados guide just to known about tastings notes and scores of argentinian and chilean wines, look for these books that maybe help u
The wines of chile, Richards Peter
Vino Argentino, Laura Catena
also check the website winesofargentina, has a lot of info about regions, producers and has great maps.
Thanks for your answer and book tips.
