Cascina Luisin Barbaresco Asili 2015

** eye pop **

Over 60% OFF a 93-POINT Barbaresco? From the coveted ASILI vineyard?? From the Tom Morello-level utterly shredding 2015 vintage? What ARE we smoking?? Nothing! Not a thing! We just love you!! And we love single-vineyard Barbaresco! So do you!

Seriously, though, people. We literally were at Cascina Luisin a week ago as part of our road-warrior, pedal-to-the-metal Italy tasting trip, and we can tell you -- LUISIN is making some of the most finely crafted, refined, elegant-but-mind-blowingly-complex and powerful wines in the region -- and guess who discovered them? BINGO!! What a wine and what a PRICE!

WOW wow wow! The nose! Truffles, black currants, orange zest, black tea and incense. OH mama, stop us. Expansive and mouthfilling, it is silky even at this tender young age, but oh-so complex and wonderful. A MUST. Man, for real. The finish is long and lush, with a terrifically layered, crazy-complex fruit and spice basket of flavor. If you have not dipped your tongue into this producer, there is simply NO. BETTER. TIME!! Wow! Only a little bit to go around! Did we mention 93 points?

The characteristic minerality given by the limestone soils of Asili is present both on the nose and palate. The fruit is pure, including cherry and raspberry compote and accompanied by baking spices and herbs. Bright acidity and velvety texture.
