The guide is published by Touring Club Italiano and dedicated to Italian wines made with native grapes. For it, 18,000 wines were tasted, over 4,000 of which are presented and reviewed in the guide.

On November 7, 2009, at an event held at teatro Puccini, (Puccini Theater) during the opening day of the Merano International Wine Festival, the eighth annual guide entitled Vinibuoni d'Italia 2010 (Good Wines of Italy 2010), published by the Touring Club Italiano, was presented to the press and the general public.

During the presentation, the producers of the 216 wines which were awarded the Corona (Crown), that is, the wines selected during the final tasting session with the participation of all the national commissions, received their prizes. According to the selecting commissions from all parts of Italy, these are excellent wines, which best express the characteristics of the native vines, as well as the terroir where they were grown. In addition to character, these wines are the result of respect for traditional Italian wine making techniques, and emphasize the uniqueness and quality of Italian wines.

All the wines tasted are produced with Italian native grapes, and offer a favorable quality/price ratio on the Italian and international markets alike.

The guide Vinibuoni d'Italia was been edited by Mario Busso, with the collaboration of Luigi Cremona. Twenty one regional tasting commissions including sommeliers and trade journalists, worked for one year tasting wines produced with Italian native grapes by 1,070 wineries.
