2007 Querce Bettina BDM - last one.  Really good juice, shady cork. 

Can you say a bit more about the cork?  I recently opened an 06 Riserva which was shipped directly from QB to the US.   I noticed the cork from my bottle had wine stains about halfway up and there were vertical lines from the bottom of the cork.  I thought it was interesting.

DD, I've gone through 12 bottles and the juice has been fantastic with the last 2-3 bordering some of the best young BDM i have tasted. I enjoy the refreshing high notes of red fruit balanced with tame sangio acidity that QB achieves. 
However, every cork has been saturated 2/3 to fully up the neck hence me finishing the case. This seems to be a trend among forumites and I wasn't willing to wait and see if the corks stood the test of time.
