Hi Tommaso,

The wines he mentions as being over $100, Pepe and Valentini, are, to the best of my knowledge, old school wines, arch traditional, and not slathered with new French oak, at least, they weren't back in the day when I was able to get my hands on some. However, no doubt there ARE a number out there which have high relative price tags and ARE slathered with new French oak, soaked in it I would say. smile
