1990 Bruno Giacosa, Barbaresco Riserva, Santo Stefano (RT Not Rated) As luck would have it the Giacosa was corked. Ever so mildly at first, but within 20 minutes it had blossomed into a wet cardboard stinkfest. Pretty sure everyone at the table, with perhaps the exception of one of mt guests, had partaken in this before, so to add insult to injury we all knew how spectacular the wine we were missing really was. I shed a tear, perhaps two.
