LIFE  The origins of this historical estate date back to 1890, but La CAPPUCCINA has always stood out for its look to the future: first, following the 1985 frost, it replaced the vineyards and started ORGANIC management, then acquired the vineyards of Monte Stelle, built the winery and barrel cellar in the 2000s, and finally restored the eighteenth century chapel.
