Pitti Immagine presents

Guide de L'Espresso magazine

Italy's fines wines for the 2007

Stazione Leopolda

In that setting Italy’s finest wines will give life to the caveau of the future. The new edition of the wine guide Vini d’Italia 2007 published by “L’Espresso” will be presented on Thursday, 19 October 2006 at 11:00 a.m. The book offers an outstanding selection of Italian wines and winemakers.

Pitti Immagine is now organizing this event for the fourth consecutive year, an event that promotes and enhances one of our country’s most important and best known industries. Like fashion, Italian wine is one of the main vehicles for promoting Italian products throughout the world. And even in areas that are not directly linked to its core business, Pitti Immagine seeks and selects excellence.
This event is made possible thanks to the cooperation of the Florence Chamber of Commerce that will be presenting a special project at the Stazione Leopolda.  
 
The items on the day’s agenda include: 
- the opening at 11:00 a.m., with the presentation of the Guide, tasting session and awards for sparkling, white, red and sweet Italian wines, at the presence of Gaetano Marzotto, the president of Pitti Immagine, Luca Mantellassi, the president of the Florence Chamber of Commerce, and the Guide’s curators Enzo Vizzari, Ernesto Gentili and Fabio Rizzari.
- then, the third edition of the auction of fine and collectors’ wines organized by Pandolfini, the renowned Florentine auction house will begin at 3:00 p.m.. Following on the heels of the successes of the first two editions, this year’s auction will consist of approximately 130 lots equally divided between Italian and French wines. Highlights of the sale include the Solaia and Tignanello lots – the proceeds from these will go to charity - and a selection of fine bottles from the famous Domaine de la Romanée Conti in Burgundy.

The venue for all these events will be the Stazione Leopolda which, thanks to its versatility, is the ideal place for producing and hosting prestigious events with a high communications value.
   
We wish to thank San Pellegrino and Italesse for helping to make this event possible.
