Antica Fratta

The cellar, built in the fratta neighbourhood of Monticelli Brusati, you already talked about with admiration in the middle of the nineteenth century. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the cav. Luigi Rossetti, a rich merchant of the area, turned a farmhouse, which presumably dates to the SIXTEENTH century in his elegant home, as well as in the headquarters of the commerce of wine, in which he built the beautiful cellars carved out in the rock of the hill sloping to the rear of the Villa. With four gallery sections arranged in a Greek cross, it could hold well six thousand hectolitres of wine, an enormous number for those days. Hence the nickname given to it by the locals: “el cantinù”, the Cantinone. The death of cav. Rossetti follows a slow decline, and everything seems to be finished, but at the end of the ‘70s another man “wine” breaks into “the life” of the Villa: Franco Ziliani – the owner of the Guido Berlucchi – the visit, which can be found in conditions distressing, but it grasps the huge charm and the uniqueness of the cellars.
