ITALIAN BRANDS HAVE LOST GROUND ON THE 2015 “POWER 100” BY LIV-EX AND THE DRINKS BUSINESS. SASSICAIA, THOUGH STILL THE MOST TRADED WINE AFTER THE BORDEAUX ONES, SLID TO NUMBER 27 (FROM NUMBER 6). TIGNANELLO INSTEAD WENT UP TO POSITION 45 (FROM 89)

The "Power 100" is compiled yearly by "Liv-ex" and "The Drinks Business" and lines up the most powerful brands in the wine world, according to specific criteria, such as volume sales, price performance and number of wines traded on Liv-ex.
The 2015 edition sees Italian brands losing ground, which instead in 2014 had done very well. For instance, Sassicaia, which is still number one among the Italians, slid to number 27 from number 6, while Tignanello climbed to number 45 from 89 a year ago. Masseto is stable at number 50, while Gaja fell to number 54 from 17, and Ornellaia is at 62, losing its 2014 position at 39. Solaia also slid down from 76 to number 86. Excellent news instead for the new entry Petrolo at number 87, the last Italian brand on the Power 100 ranking. Many big Italian names that have graced the lists in recent years are missing, like Roberto Voerzio Tua Rita, Giacomo Conterno, Bruno Giacosa, Macchiole and Guado al Tasso.
Mouton Rothschild stands out in first place, especially following the two years in which the great Bordeaux wines had stepped down from the throne, and Domaine de la Romanee-Conti took their place.
All Bordeaux Premiers Crus earned positions except for Château Latour that together with Mouton Rothschild, Haut Brion and Margaux showed price increases. The best performing newcomers come instead from Burgundy: Coche Dury at number 18 and Lambrays at 59. Sassicaia is confirmed the most traded wine after the Bordeaux ones, while California is confirmed the rising star of fine wines, as Scarecrow (debuting on the "Power 100" at number 83) and Screaming Eagle are seeing their prices go up, respectively, 19.9% and 15.1%. Angelus and Pavie continue to benefit from the 2012 reclassification, and hold positions 3 and 4. Regarding the system, there has been a historic change as critics’ scores have disappeared from the criteria, because there are too many to consider on so many wines and vintages.
