Sassicaia, Tignanello and Ornellaia: the Italians most loved (and sought) by wine lovers

In the “Wine Searcher” ranking, Giacomo Conterno, Masseto and Case Basse are on the podium of the most expensive

These are real oenological masterpieces, rare and beloved, not for everyone, but so popular that they are now part of the common imagination of wine lovers all over the world: the “Most Popular“ and the “Most Expensive” among the great Italian wines according to “Wine Searcher”, lined up by online searches and purchases by millions of users. Among the most popular, Sassicaia of Tenuta San Guido stands out, also thanks to the awards of Italian and international critics in recent months (from No. 1 of the “Top 100” of “Wine Spectator” for the 2015 vintage, to 100/100 for 2016 awarded by “The Wine Advocate”, whose Italian correspondent is Monica Larner), followed by the Tignanello of the Marchesi Antinori, the first modern red wine assembled with non-traditional varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and by Ornellaia , another great protagonist of the luxury market.
At the foot of the podium is Masseto, which recently opened its new home, followed by the Solaia of the Marchesi Antinori, then the Barolo Riserva Monfortino by Giacomo Conterno, just in front of the Brunello Case Basse by Gianfranco Soldera, which for some years now has become Toscana Igt, without losing any of its charm. At the end of the Top 10, another icon of the Langhe like the Barolo by Bartolo Mascarello, Le Pergole Torte di Montevertine and a symbol of Italy’s oenology as the Barbaresco di Gaja.
Among the most expensive labels, however, at the top is the Barolo Riserva Monfortino di Giacomo Conterno, which in the hundreds of online wine shops put together by “Wine Searcher”, is at an average price of 1,053 euros per bottle, the Masseto at 667 euros and Brunello di Montalcino Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera at 625 euros. Immediately behind the first three, the history of Sangiovese Grosso, Brunello di Montalcino Biondi Santi - Tenuta Il Greppo, at 499 euros per bottle, in front of the Colore of Bib Graetz (414 euros) and Barolo Label d’Artista by Bartolo Mascarello ( 396 euros). Among the great classics, in Italy and abroad, the Vin Santo di Montepulciano Occhio di Pernice di Avignonesi, which comes at an average price of 389 euros per bottle, just like the Barolo Rocche di Castiglione Falletto di Bruno Giacosa. The top ten most expensive wines in the Belpaese region were Sorì San Lorenzo (384 euros) and Sorì Tildin (363 euros), both from Gaja.
