Fine Wine, Italy is the fastest on Liv-Ex in the first half of 2019, and its “worth” grows

In the first half of the year with ups and downs for the secondary market of fine wines in the world, Italy shines, and more than put in the best performance, Italy also observes growing its prestige among investors and collectors around the world. This is what emerged from data of the first semester 2019 of Liv-Ex, benchmark of the sector, analysed by WineNews. Data shows that Liv-Ex 100, benchmark index of the platform, that monitors the price development of the top 100 wines on market, for the first time in the year it has showed a month of growth, with June closing at + 0.4%, but the balance sheet from the beginning of the year closed down, at -0.93 %. This happens also for the performance after 6 months from Liv-Ex 1000, the biggest index of Liv-Ex, down by 2.04% because of the collapse of Burgundy 150 (-6.23%) and of Bordeaux Legends (-3 %). And if in 2019 index Champagne 50 and Rhone 100 increase +0.37% and 0.4% respectively, the best performace is that of Italy 100, composed by the last physical vintages of Sassicaia, Masseto, Solaia (Antinori), Tignanello (Antinori), Ornellaia, Barbaresco di Gaja, Barolo Monfortino Riserva and Barolo Cascina Francia di Giacomo Conterno, Guado al Tasso (Antinori) e Redigaffi di Tua Rita, which closes at +2.4%. The energy of these fine Italian wines is also attested by the future admission of Italian labels in Liv-Ex 100 (where Bordeaux wines will be reduced from 67 current to 50, and it will be added 7 for Italy and Burgundy respectively, and 3 for Champagne ndr) : from the current Italian members Masseto 2014, Ornellaia 2013 and 2015, Sassicaia 2014 and 2015, Tignanello 2015 and Barolo Monfortino Riserva 2010 di Giacomo Conterno, there will be added from the next month Masseto 2015, Sassicaia 2016, Solaia 2015, Tignanello 2016, Barolo 2014 di Bartolo Mascarello, il Barolo Villero 2013 Brovia and Sperss 2013 di Gaja. So Italy doubles its worth in the main index, that shows developments of fine wines in the market, where the Belpaese, with its most important wine brands, is capturing the world.
