Asinoi’s label is inspired on Bruna’s passion and researches about donkeys. The culture of protecting donkeys, animals that follow us since the birth of our species, is one of the uncountable goals of the national association “l’Asino” that coordinates donkey growers throughout the country, as well as its use for humanitarian and didactic purposes (please search about the program “Asinine”). 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…
It is a wine that pairs well with entrances, with spiced first dishes or lighter second dishes.
