"Questo"is a vineyard located at the lower border of the Maisano property, atthough at un altitude of about 260/280 metres above sea level. It has a splendid south-western exposure , distinguished particulary by the composition of the terrain, with a finer and freer grain than found in other zones. Cabernet is present here as a complementary vine. Its rich fruity quality gives greater body to the Sangiovese, to obtain a classic Chianti with intense colour, flavour and fragrance.
