For study purposes, I created various MindMaps (dropbox folder) showing essential information for 175 Italian grape varieties.  Click on an icon below to see my study notes... These are based on the book by Ian d'Agata, Native Wines Grapes of Italy and reinforced with added information (organoleptic properties only) from Wine Grapes by Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding, and Jose Vouillamoz. Photos from Vivai Cooperativi Raucsedo and Italian National Registry. Because of the huge quantity of information, this is a work in progress. Please visit for regular updates.  I hope you find these mind maps useful! If you see something you do not agree, you will be so kind to let me know so that I can review your comments and possibly update the related map accordingly.  If you recognize a picture you took and do not want me to use it in those maps, please let me know kindly and I will certainly change it.
