Cascina Luisin Barbaresco Paolin 2013  - Last Bottle

Cascina Luisin Barbaresco Paolin 2013

Hey, Mike B., of Boulder, CO --- dood, we bought this for YOU (Mike loves Nebbiolo and snagged a big pile of credits in his account using our referral code)! Single-vineyard BARBARESCO greatness, over 50% OFF, and Wine Spectator 93 POINTS! 2013 vintage! Does life get better if you love Nebbiolo?? No!

Cascina Luisin is a Last Bottle direct import for several years now, and it’s one of those wineries we feel like we “discovered” and is now getting the attention of the critics. That’s a double-edged sword, as we get a little less every year….so grab THIS while we got it. Founded in 1913, they make spectacular, fine, complex Barbaresco from 3 of the great vineyards in the region -- Rabaja, Asili, and Paolin. The Paolin bottling is arguably the sexiest, most approachable and softest, while still having serious structure and power. 2013 is an excellent vintage and this has a long life ahead of it, if you can wait!! We can’t. 


Thank your delivery guy (offer them a glass of water, maybe? Or a LaCroix?).

Order a pizza.

Run, don’t walk, to get a corkscrew, Rabbit, Coravin or whatever you use.

Tear box open with knife, teeth, anything.

Pop that cork, what is taking so long…

INHALE the rose petals, Asian spice (oh-so delicate), dried cherry, anise, and black tea aromas….my goodness. It is filling this office as I type. Beautiful, elegant, light on its feet but terrifically packed with SO MUCH FLAVOR. We love it. We love the PRICE -- c’mon! Single-vineyard Barbaresco!! While it lasts, Mike!
