Product category: Lombardia, Franciacorta


Antica Fratta takes its first step towards the future, one in which pleasure and approachability encounter complexity and structure. A union that strikes the eye as much as it does the other senses, yielding a Franciacorta whose finesse from Chardonnay enjoys the fruit brought to it by Pinot Noir. The eye and the nose enjoy it before the mouth: a refined, pale rose announces scents of country woods and fruit preserves, polished by 36 months sur lie. Sensuous, elegant, eclectic, a wine perfect for any moment, and with any dish, to be enjoyed with the finest charcuterie, but with meat dishes as well, and full-flavoured fish preparations.

Company details

In all likelihood things, as well as people, have a written destiny; or at least this is what one believes when looking back at the history of this Villa. It owes its present aristocratic appearance to two restructuring procedures, each carried out a century apart.

The winery was built in the Fratta area of Monticelli Brusati, and was already held in high regard in the mid-1800s. In the second half of the nineteenth century, Sir Luigi Rossetti, a wealthy merchant from the local area, turned a farmhouse (presumably dating back to the 16th century) into his elegant mansion, as well as the headquarters of his wine trade, for which he built the beautiful wine cellars carved out by digging into the rocky hill behind the Villa.  With four tunnels arranged in the form of a Greek cross, it could hold a good six thousand hectolitres of wine, which was a vast amount for that time. Hence the nickname given to it by the locals: "el cantinù," meaning 'the great cellar'.After Rossetti's death, there was a slow decline and everything seemed to be over. Then, in the late '70s, another man "of wine" burst into the "life" of the Villa: Franco Ziliani – patron of the Guido Berlucchi company – visited the winery, and despite finding it in dismal conditions, he grasped the enormous charm and uniqueness of the cellars.

After a series of major consolidation, reconstruction and restoration works, the villa and the garden, with its characteristic ridges sloping down the hill, are yet again able to welcome and amaze visitors, immersing them in the hospitable warmth of rooms furnished with simple elegance.1979 saw the establishment of the new Antica Fratta project, aimed at restoring the winery to its former glory. Today Antica Fratta "relaunches" with new and greater ambitions, with the firm intention of becoming the "essence" of Franciacorta.
