The Firm Quaquarini Francesco is situated in Monteveneroso, a little hamlet in the commune of Canneto Pavese, at about 50 min. from Milan. The founders: Francesco and his wife Liliana gave birth to a firm which they were able to make important; today, even if they are always present for the most important choices, they have left the leadership of the firm to their children, with pride and confidence. At present the farm extends over about 60 ha cultivated with vines, situated in the first hilly strip at an altitude from 200 to 300 m. The soils are of various structure: from sandy soils with a steep gradient, situated at west, for the production of young, scented red wines, with good body, to much more complex soils, with calcareous and clayey composition, with south-west exposition, for wines with strong personality and structure, with very important maturing times, such as Buttafuoco Vigna Pregana.
