Reply to "Most expensive corked/off wine you've had?"

1990 Aldo Conterno Barolo Granbussia

My Cellartracker note at the time:

Excellent fill, no seepage, clean, solid cork. But the wine was spoiled. The colour and opacity of muddy liquid brown sugar. The nose and palate of shoe polish. A massive disappointment. Purchased at auction from Spectrum. When the bottle arrived I noted that it also had an Acker Merrill auction sticker. And who knows where else it had travelled and how it had been stored. A costly reminder that provenance is everything.
