One of the top moments will be “Amarone 4wd, off the beaten track: different styles of Amarone combined with haute cuisine dishes from various countries of the world”, an initiative conceived with “La Peca”, a two-star Michelin restaurant in Lonigo (Vicenza), and the narration of the food critic and wine expert, Davide Scapin. Then the session “The boom generation: the last decades of Amarone from its escalation to global success”conducted by JC Viens, Italian Wine Ambassador and Wset Educator.
