Cocconato, resting on one of the highest crests of the Monferrato region in Asti, is a window that captures the suns’ entirety! The slopes are steep and so not easy. For this reason and also the years of flight from the countryside to a promising Torino illuminated by the siren song of Fiat, the vineyards and the woods here were left to ruin.
Cecilia Zucca and her family remained in Cocconato and continued farming, and together with their vineyards, following the guidelines of the economy in Monferrato, have also succeeded in raising a breed of cattle called Fassone, producing the finest beef in the world.
