The Carussin farm was founded in 1927 in S. Marzano Oliveto, a small town in the province of Asti. No chemicals were used on the farm since 1984 and has integrated many biodynamic practices into their farming. Today their 14 hectares are certified organic by “Suolo e Salute”.
There are around 10 donkeys at Carussin. Due to her passion for the animal, Bruna has created the Teaching Farm “Asinoi, Pane e Coccole” (“Asinoi, Bread and Petting”). The educational activities at the Teaching Farm are aimed at kids from elementary school. This project linked to the nonverbal communication, by playing that “everything that has life has a language” and that man, who holds an elaborative intelligence has the duty of finding the key to communication. Only by finding that key we could find out how to respect other living beings.
A daily red wine made from a blend of red grapes (mainly Barbera); the grapes are de-stemmed, pressed and vinified spontaneously with only indigenous yeasts
Named after winemaker Bruna Ferro’s adorable herd of donkeys, the Asinoi displays complex floral aromas with baked plums; on the palate, cranberry, cherry and prune come together with an energizing freshness. To be drunk slightly chilled, this Barbera is made with no oak, low-to-no added sulfur
Purest Nebbiolo around, no fining, no filtering, no sulfites, no wood, not even a cork; mushroom, wet clay and rose petals with a slightly leather mouthfeel and a bit of smokey edge. This wine is named after the farmer who worked this plot of Nebbiolo in the commune of Barolo for most of a lifetime. It is not exposed to wood (even cork) at any stage in the production process.
