A selection of wines from Masi, leader in the production of Amarone, were served on 12 March at the gala dinner of the B7 – the intergovernmental cooperation forum of the seven most industrialized countries held in Verona as part of the G7 – in the elegant setting of the Prefecture headquarters. The organization and service during the evening were entrusted to the Masi Wine Experience staff, which manages the catering and wine tourism activities of the winemaking group. The menu, curated by Vitangelo Galluzzi, Hospitality Services Manager, offered a culinary experience celebrating the typical products symbolic of the Verona area.
