I participated in the Dec. TAA. Unfortunately here in AZ finding anything is near impossible. I ended up with Genofranco 2003. It was so acidic, fruitless, and took an hour and a half to be worthy of sipping. Yuck! I checked JS' notes and he enjoyed it, even stating that it was a great value for the money. I ran out to get another bottle and this second wine was just as his notes described: chocolaty, plum, etc. A true nero d'avola. What happened? I have had cooked wine, corked wine, maderized, and old. This was none of the above. Can you or JS shed some light on this? Same bottle, probably same case.
