The Ferro family founded the estate in 1927 in the hills of Barbera d’Asti between Nizza Monferrato and Canelli.  Carussin is one of only two certified organic vineyards in the San Marzano Oliveto region and is now firmly committed to biodynamics in their care for the land down to their farm donkey, pictured on the Asinoi label.  This bottling of Barbera represents everything traditional and natural about the region.  The funky, soily nose screams Italy, and is offset and balanced by bright red fruit on the palate.  Higher acid and red raspberry give the wine a fresh finish with a touch of earth to remind you where this wine came from.

Pairings:
Tagliatelle pasta with morel mushrooms, robiola cheese and truffle oil
