Gambero Rosso

Most famous Italian wine guide, published annually since 1987 (another one is the Veronelli Guide). But the correct and on the cover also mentioned name is actually "Vini d'Italia". It is published by the Roman publishing house Gambero Rosso, whose name has also become the name of the guide. The journalist Carlo Petrini (*1949), who was also co-editor of Gambero Rosso for a long time, was involved in its creation.

The guide has been available in German translation since 1989 through the Hallwag publishing house.

The special evaluation of Gambero Rosso takes place in the form of glasses:
