- Other Information:The barbera grapes dedicated for Lia Vì come from a single 37 years old vineyard in San Marzano Oliveto, just in front of cellar. Lia Vì grapes follow the same process of Asinoi, in 2015 we kept the wine in contact with skins for six days more than the previous year. After the racking from the skins we split the volume in two tanks, the big one (100 Hl) of steel and another one of concrete (20 Hl) for the fining ., Those two tanks will be blended together one month before the bottling that happens usually on summer.
Carussin is made by Bruna, Luigi, Matteo and Luca who care for 15 Ha of vineyards. Alongside winemaking, they each have a side project. Bruna and her ten donkeys work with kids, Luigi volunteers with associations in San Marzano Oliveto, Luca is a craft brewer and his brother Matteo grows various greens.
