Vinitaly: visitors +20% for Franciacorta, a wave of thums-up

Erbusco, 12 April 2013 – “Once again, Franciacorta exceeded expectations, welcoming 20% more visitors to its stand, or some 60,000 wine lovers. This figure is certainly gratifying, demonstrating the friendship shown Franciacorta by wine lovers and industry professionals. At the same time, considering the inconveniences represented by such numbers, the figure underscores the inadequacy of our location within Palaexpo, which we have previously stated on numerous occasions.” Such was the initial reaction of Maurizio Zanella, President of the Consorzio Franciacorta, at the conclusion of the 47th edition of Vinitaly, in which Franciacorta wines reigned as a true star among the wines of Lombardy.
