Carussin is a family story. The parents, Bruna and Luigi, run the domain while their children, Matteo and Luca, take care of the cellar and the vines respectively. The family thus takes care of their 12 hectares of vines spread over four villages around San Marzano Oliveto in Piedmont. Mainly focused on Barbera d'Asti and Moscato d'Asti, the vineyard is certified organic and biodynamic. The rows are grassed and no chemical intervention is applied. They like to describe their wines as having a low anthropogenic impact.
In addition to their love of vines and nature, each member of the family follows a parallel project. Bruna has a great passion for looking after her 10 donkeys. She organizes teaching activities at the educational farm for primary school children in the region while her husband devotes himself to volunteering at San Marzano Oliveto. Luca is a brewer and his craft beers are sold throughout the region. As for Matteo, he has just started a project based on the cultivation of germs and hemp. The intention of everyone remains the same: to live on the land that saw them being born while respecting nature.
'Sbaraglio' is a bottling of Dolcetto from their vineyards in Asti. Aging of the wine is carried out in fiberglass vessels with sour cherry and plum notes flanked by earth, spice, fresh herbs and a lightly floral characteristic. Elegant and lively with a solid jolt of acidity, rustic tannins and vibrant complexity. Serve at cellar temperature or slightly chilled, for best experience. Perfect wine for antipasti, aged/mature Italian cheeses and fatty cured meats.
