At some point in every wine lover's deepening obsession , they fall down the cartographic rabbit hole.  If you've fallen prey to this map-centric preoccupation, don't miss this episode of Wine Thieves.  John and Sara speak with mapmaker straordinario Alessandro Masnaghetti,   founder of Enogea, publisher of the  world's most detailed maps of wine regions.  More than just practical tools, these are works of cultural significance, humanizing and preserving a living landscape. But they do also help us  to understand a wine's shaded nuances of flavour and structure, positioning each in contextual time and space.  Masnaghetti's map of Montepulciano guides the Wine Thieves as they delve deeper into the distinctive terroir of Vino Nobile .
