Per l’occasione l’area espositiva della stazione Leopolda sarà suddivisa in diverse aree: una riservata ai produttori di vino, l’area relax&food, con degustazioni di prodotti tipici e di nicchia, una sezione interamente dedicata all’olio extravergine italiano e l’area riservata ai principali Consorzi vinicoli, dove per la prima volta sarà presente anche il Consorzio Chianti Rufina. Per le Cantine Bellini, in qualità di sommelier per la degustazione dei nostri vini, sarà presente Andrea Masi.
Vi aspettiamo presso il Consorzio Chianti Rufina!
