The painting represented on the label and present in the museum of Palazzo di Fraternita, symbolizes the ‘questua’ (the begging), a moment dedicated to the collection of offers in favor of the needy.
Questua is a modern wine based on Tuscan traditions: it is a blend of our Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a young wine that lends itself well to different pairings.
Fermentations are spontaneous with indigenous yeasts. The whole winemaking process, as for all our wines, is careful in respecting the “terroir”.
For this wine the vinification and aging take place in steel tanks and then it ends in bottle for at least 3/6 months.
