2006 Querce Bettina Brunello Riserva. Similar observations with the cork. Wine stains 3/4 up to top. Approachable but still early for me. Paired with penne and homemade Bolognese.
I've had a lot of disappointments with Querce Bettina, especially with corked wines. But the 2006 Brunello Riserva lived up to the billing that some of its fans on the forum have been giving it.
