Asinoi is made with soft pressing, controlled fermentation and average maceration, wine is pumped over circa 3 times a day, wine becomes steady naturally during ageing. Short ageing in concrete tanks. Longevity: 4 to 5 years.

Asinoi’s label is inspired on Bruna’s passion and researches about donkeys. They also run a national association called “l’Asino” that coordinates donkey growers throughout the country, as well as its use for humanitarian and didactic purposes. Eleonora and Luigi from Crealto has two donkeys from Carrusin, so the organisation is working well ;).

The Donkey is a simple animal in its complexity: it never does what it does not understand; it is faithful, respectful, goliardic, playful, but most of all, it loves to be in company. Our Barbera d’Asti Asinoi has its name because it suits perfectly well with a snack in company of great friends…

In 1981 Luigi Garberoglio meets Bruna and gets attracted by the fascinating work of winemaking, and by Bruna, of course! Its consolidation will come 3 years after with the “inevitable” marriage… In 1988 Ferro Carlo leaves to his daughter his precious wealth of experience and wisdom, with his support and with so much will to grow, she continues this fascinating and compelling work which is winemaking. Nowadays Luigi Garberoglio and Bruna Ferro “nest their dreams” on their inherited reality, applying their life philosophy. With their sons Luca and Matteo, the family group is complete.

No chemicals that could harm nature are used on the Farm’s lands since 1984; besides, with the instruction of Dr. Leonello Anello we follow the work on our vineyards with the modern biodynamic method, good practices that extand in the cellar. Our work in the vineyards is certified organic by “Suolo e Salute”.

Carussin waits for your visit to the farm and to the cellar: the tour begins at the “core cellar” where Bruna’s grandparents used to work and it follows through the wine ageing room, you could then peek the winemaking cellar, where there are the pressing and the bottling facilities.
