For the first time in Wine Spectator's history, an Italian wine has been named Wine Of The Year. The 1997 Antinori Solaia from Tuscany has been awarded the number one spot for 2000. While France and California have traditionally dominated this list, Italian wines have become a new force in 2000 with three out of Wine Spectator's top ten picks. According to Wine Spectator, it has only been in the last few decades that Italy has begun to make world-class wines, and wine producer Piero Antinori is credited with being a major force in this new generation of Italian winemaking.
