gourmandia2“Gourmandia – Le Terre Golose del Gastronauta” is going to take place next week but the the main theme of the festival, created by David Paolini, founder of Gastronauta and wine journalist of Il Sole 24 Ore and Radio24, will not be just food.
There will also be a wine area with a selection of the best national wineries and a series of events about wine, such as a  wine prize and a debate on wine defects.
On May the 15th Stefano Zaninotto, Amorim Cork Italy quality manager, will host a seminar, "Defects of wine wanted”, by deepening the subject with a meeting aimed at experienced consumers and professionals.  The talk will be about the defects of wine and in particular how wine changes from food to symbol, how the defects change from biochemical to sensory, what a smart nose is, and to conclude a sensory analysis to put into practice the first part of the theory.
The Gastronauta - Cantina Tramin Award will also be delivered to the top 10 wine shops in Italy, selected through a poll between opinion leaders, journalists and wine lovers.
