Wine Advocate Gushes: “A First-Class Effort from Start to Finish”
Elvio Cogno Barolo Cascina Nuova 2006
It's hard to believe summer is on its way out. We had a very busy week preparing for Labor Day weekend, consequently we were remiss in sending out an email last week. We're making up for our oh-so-brief absence with the announcement of a remarkable wine at a truly great price.
With all the rain and the leaves already falling off the trees from the tropical storm, our thoughts naturally turn toward red wine after a summer sipping lush rosé and crisp white wines. All of a sudden it feels good to be in the kitchen again cooking more hearty dishes like homemade pasta with wild mushrooms, braised short ribs with polenta, and slow-cooked pulled pork.
All those earthy dishes require a wine which inherently knows how to be a good companion. We have just the best friend in mind. In fact, today we have the perfect red wine for all your early autumnal needs.

Elvio Cogno Barolo Cascina Nuova 2006

Sometimes, in order to do justice, you just have to keep quiet and allow the press do the talking.
“Cogno’s 2006 Barolo Cascina Nuova is a TRULY BEAUTIFUL wine at this level. Red cherries, sweet, perfumed roses, mint and baking spices are just some of the nuances that emerge from this beautiful, traditionally made Barolo. The Cascina Nuova shows wonderful density in a weightless style that only Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo are capable of. THIS IS A FIRST-CLASS EFFORT FROM START TO FINISH. With a little air, the Cascina Nuova is enjoyable even now. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
Cogno is one of Piedmont’s undiscovered jewels. From top to bottom, the wines are consistently excellent to outstanding.” (Wine Advocate)

“Wow, what a wonderful wine, delivering rich notes of black fruit, vanilla, cherry and spice. But the aromas are in no way obvious. In fact, this is an ethereal and elegant wine that pays attention to the little details, like the light shadings of polished stone and violets that liven up the long finish.” (Wine Enthusiast)

“Salty licorice notes complement the cherry, menthol and spice flavors in this red, which is tightly wound yet balanced, with a fine spicy finish. Should develop nicely in time. 400 cases imported.” (Wine Spectator)

With only 400 cases imported into the United States there isn't a whole lot of this wine around. In fact, you would be rather hard pressed to find this wine at any other store because we have been offered an exclusive from its importer, the world renowned Italian specialist, Vias Imports.
Cogno Barolo Cascina Nuova sells for $50/bottle. This week only we are very pleased to offer this magnificent wine to our VIP Wine Club for only $44.99/bottle or if you really want to splurge and stock up, the rock bottom price of $431.90/12 pack case ($35.99/bottle; an amazing discount of $28%).
Offer good through Friday, September 16th, or until supplies last.
