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.
I can't answer for Mangiare but the only bottles I've seen with suspect corks have been the 07 normale. I haven't seen any on any bottles from 2004-2006. I do have a couple of 07 Riservas, but haven't opened any yet. Hopefully they weren't stoppered with the same batch of corks as the normale.
