Wine and gourmet festivals
An occasion not to be missed with this delicious autumnal fruit has become a tradition: in the early afternoon the cooking competition and distribution of roasted chestnuts starts, while straight after the prize of the Castagna d’Oro will be awarded. The start of autumn is, without doubt, the chestnut season. In this period, in fact, there are festivals and celebrations in their honour in every region in Italy. This fruit is the base of numerous food specialities, mostly for desserts.
