Situated in Triversa Valley on the sunny slopes of Asti’s Northern hills, this small business is run and owned by Domenico Capello. Set on fifteen hectares of land, ten of which are vineyards .The surrounding area includes the municipalities of Roatto, S. Paolo Solbrito and Piovà Massaia,
La Montagnetta is now a well-known specialist in the production of Fresia and has in recent years, through a series of studies and conducted experiments , made it possible to show how a high degree of maturity results in an unexpected enological quality from the grape.
We are located in a picturesque farming community (22 kilometres from Asti) in the north of Asti hills. Here, after visiting our cellar in Bricco Capello, you can finish of the day with a stroll around the nearby village of Roatto, with its medieval castle, tower and surrounding park or visit the churches of Saint Michael or Radegonda.
