Day 2 of VINITALY in Verona the city of Romeo and Juliet
The warm sun is up and it looks like a very beautiful day..After a jolly good breakfast it is off soon to VINITALY for more hard work…wine and food tasting…
VINITALY is getting bigger and bigger and so on the way into Veronafiere there are big jams of cars and buses. I am based in a nice 4 Star hotel in Villafranca called Hotel Expo where the GM is my friend.
First stop at the International Buyers’ Lounge to fortify myself with a hot espresso! Then I visited Maculan and the owner Fausto Maculan for some salami and wine…a light Vespaiolo like the summer breeze.
On next to see a dear freind Chiara Lungarotti of the famous Lungarotti wines of Torgiano. Chiara told me her son, Giovanni is turning 11 and we tasted her best wines which was really lovely. My favourite is the Rubesco. i also tried their red Passito dessert wine which is most unique.
