I have a number of large format wines. I have been offered a magnum of the 2001 Valdicava Madonna Del Piano for $600 or a double magnum for $1200. Considering the current prices on this wine these seem like reasonable prices. I am not interested in flipping the wines. I buy these bottles for my collection, but reality has set in, at some point you drink or sell. Reality for me will be age 65, not too far in the future.
So the question is this, are Italian wines, Sangiovese in particular, reasonable in large formats.
The local discussion goes two ways. One, most people don't like Sangiovese and so you would need a vast network of friends to consume a large bottle and some wine would be wasted. Two, no one else would buy it either for the same reason. Keep in mind this is a 100 point WS rating. What's your advice?
