The relationship between Freisa and Nebbiolo is close, and although the prince of the Piedmont hills has long obscured the charm of his more timid cousin, we can say without reservations that today Freisa is in the limelight. La Cappelletta is the name of the site where the homonymous vineyard stands in Costa Vescovato (Alessandria), planted 10 years ago in a medium-textured clayey soil that gives this wine an exceptional structure and a singular personality. A clear ruby with aromas of plum, raisins and cherries in alcohol and a fine and direct taste, supported by strong tannins. Manual harvesting takes place in mid-September, vinification at controlled temperature and aging are in steel, where La Cappelletta rests for a year before passing for another 18 months in the bottle.
Variety: Freisa 100%
The origins of the Boveri winery date back to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, an uninterrupted agricultural history for centuries and five generations. History teaches us that in this tumultuous lapse of time the status of agricultural work goes from being profitable and central to marginal and disadvantageous. Yet, in 1988, Giacomo Boveri hangs up on his training as a telecommunications technician, choosing to devote himself full time to the management of the family farm. Over the next thirty years Giacomo set up the business with the intention on the one hand of increasing the company surface, on the other hand of improving the techniques in the vineyard and in the cellar. The main objective, however, has been from the beginning to produce and promote wines with a strong territorial character, betting on native vines on the verge of oblivion such as Timorasso, Croatina and Freisa. Time has proved him right. To close the circle, since 2019 the Boveri winery follows the Passione & Ragione protocol for sustainable viticulture, with guiding principles that look synergistically to improving product quality and protecting the environment.
