M

ap egendIt is called “Classico” because “classically” Chianti wine was produced only in a small territory delimited by the historic will of local winemakers.

L

egend: The necessity to control water has always caused farmers to split their fields into lots. In Tuscany these are called “prese”. In Chianti, the massive presence of stones and slopes made “prese” be very small in size, often bounded by stone walls. At Mocenni, there was a field of about 3 hectares which was less difficult than others, and it was possible to split it into only six “prese”. Compared to the others, these six seemed enormous, and were thus called “presoni”.
