Trezzo Tinella (Trés in Piedmontese) is an Italian town of 309 inhabitants in the province of Cuneo, in Piedmont.
A few kilometers from Alba and Neive, Trezzo is located on the ridge that leads to Benevello and Bossolasco.
The country, although very ancient and in Roman times with a very large capital, has practically kept no trace of its glorious past.
In 1879 the pavement of an ancient Via Magistra Langarum was found, which climbed over the Tinella to the San Giovanni bridge and connected Alba with Cortemilia.
A strategic location along the route of the “Via Magistra” is Naranzana, where in 1974 the Patetta brothers, while they were plowing, found the remains of a Roman necropolis.
In the vineyards of Monte Oliveto shaped, square or rectangular stones continue to come to light, revealing ancient settlements.
The path of the Via Magistra is suitable for hiking or mountain biking.
The municipality is one of the production sites for dolcetto and other Langhe wines, an area with a high wine-growing vocation where the soil rich in limestone marl and an ideal microclimate give rise to high-profile designations of origin.
An example is the Cerrino farm, located precisely in Cappelletto in the municipality of Trezzo Tinella, Winegrowers for several generations, today the company is led by Sergio Cerrino who in 2000 decided to make his passion into a real working activity, starting the direct sale to the public of the wines produced on the farm.
Eight hectares of specialized vineyards surround the old farmhouse. They are cultivated following traditional practices including pre-harvest thinning and a guided and integrated pest control program. Moscato, Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Chardonnay, Favorita find their place among the sunny rows, all in a south-southeast position. The agricultural area is completed by 5 specialized hazel hectares.
