Barbera, Barolo and Barbaresco: wine tasting, October 7th with “3 Bar Atmosfera”

And here we go again with our tastings focused only on wines with low anthropic impact: the third evening of tastings is named “3 Bar atmosfera!” (“3 Bar atmosphere”) and it is scheduled for Saturday, October 7th, at 5:30 PM at our “agribirrificio” Grappolo contro Luppolo, in San Marzano Oliveto (Asti). The tasting includes three great red wines, Barbera, Barbaresco and Barolo, the “3 Bar”: Barbera del Monferrato Superiore Reitemp 2013, Rocco di Carpeneto (Alessandria); Barbaresco Montestefano 2012, Azienda Agricola Rivella Serafino, Barbaresco; Barolo Brunate 2011, Giuseppe Rinaldi, Barolo. The “atmosphere” will be made by Mattia Muscatello, who will be reading poems from his book, written with Gabriele Sanzo: “Biografia di un’ombra”.

On the menu of the evening you could find: bruschette and salami boards of “salame cotto Monferrino” from San Desiderio Farm, boards of “prosciutto crudo” from San Desiderio Farm and a salad made of vegetables from Duipuvrun Farm, an organic green garden led by Stefano Scvino in Costigliole d’Asti. At the end, boards of wild bore salami from Caldera Farm and cured goat cheeses from Cascina Aris; homemade “crostata” paired with Moscato d’Asti Filari Corti, Carussin.

At the end, each participant will be invited to play the game of the black glass: we will pour on a black glass one of the wines tasted during the evening, and you will be asked to guess which wine it is…

Tasting and menu are 20€ per person. Maximum of 15 seats, to book it, please call: +39 3889981851 (Marina)


Exchange of Ideas

This page in the website was born of the desire of writing ideas and facts of Carussin’s day-to-day! Since May, one of the family’s pillar: Bruna’s mother, is crossing a delicate period, and the time is not the best for Bruna to write on her “diary”!!!

Therefore, we wish on the other hand to involve you on the readings that are laying on desks and nightstands of our family!!! Share with all of you our readings is a certain way to keep in touch!!! It is not at all an explicit way of communicating, but for those who wish to go further on using that “energy” we all have of communicating not verbally, of reading non “between lines”, but “between titles”!!!

We expect, later, an exchange of ideas, opinions, interpretations and everything that comes to your mind in front of a glass of Barbera d’Asti!

Carussin in The Guardian! “Parlapà!!”

According to The Guardian and our great friend Giorgio De Maria, consumers understand that in a Bag-in-Box we could also find good, natural and healthy wines: authentic wines of good quality, fruit of the work with simple grapes, made with short maceration, but, anyway, fresh and fruity wines, wines for everyday, within everyone’s reach and good for everyday’s meals.

Read this beautiful article, on which we had the pleasure to be mentioned.

Have a nice Bag-in-Box and cheers!!!

La Tranquilla…

La Tranquilla Vineyard

La Tranquilla Vineyard

La Tranquilla vineyard… please wait!! It’s only July 24th! We still have to bottle Filari Corti 2016, Asinoi 2016, Lia Vì 2016 and Masato San’s Albarossa… anyway… there are a few little things before harvest!!!

La Tranquilla is a beautiful vineyard, I mean, it is beautiful to us: full of life, full of energy, quiet, slow and balanced… it is everything in its sane chaos!!! It is not a programmed-soldier-vineyard… perfect and organized, absolutely not. It is simply a vineyard that expresses itself with generosity!!!
