    As if the DOP and IGP changes weren't already enough. It's like a collective unorganized effort to keep Italy as confusing and random (...30 months with at least 3 months bottle age...wtf? Screw Felsina, Rancia is only aged 16-18 months!) as possible. And just when I finally memorized the difference between Antoniolo, Antinori, Arcibaldo, Vigna de Alceo, Accaiolo and Assinaia. It's possible that last one doesn't exist.
