The degree of kinship between Freisa and Nebbiolo is close, and although the prince of the Piedmontese hills has long overshadowed the charm of his more shy cousin, we can state 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 firm tannins. The manual harvest takes place in mid-September, the vinification at controlled temperature and refinement are in steel, where La Cappelletta rests for a year before passing for another 18 months in the bottle.

__________________________________________________________________________________

The origins of the Boveri winery date back to between the end of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century, an uninterrupted agricultural history for centuries and five generations. History teaches us that in this tumultuous period of time the status of agricultural work goes from being remunerative and central to marginal and disadvantageous. Yet, in 1988, Giacomo Boveri hangs up 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 area, and on the other, 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 marked territorial character, betting on native vines on the verge of oblivion such as Timorasso, Croatina and Freisa. Time proved him right. To close the circle, since 2019 the Boveri winery has been following the Passion & Reason protocol for sustainable viticulture, with guiding principles that look synergistically at improving product quality and protecting the environment.
