Sassicaia, Tignanello and Ornellaia: the top Italian wine brands according to Wine-Lister

Sassicaia, Tignanello, Ornellaia, Solaia and Masseto: five iconic Italian wines, five super Tuscans, and five top Italian wines in the “Brand Score” ranking of the English portal Wine-Lister, which measures the strength of the brand (by evaluating the frequency of research on Wine-Searcher and the presence in the wine list of starred restaurants). And so, the first position, with 998 points out of 1000, is of Sassicaia of Tenuta San Guido, also strong in the awards of Italian and international critics in recent months (from No. 1 of the “Top 100” of “Wine Spectator” for the year 2015, to 100/100 for 2016 assigned by “The Wine Advocate”, whose correspondent of Italy is Monica Larner).
Then there is another mythical wine of the Belpaese, the Tignanello di Antinori, with 995 points, a milestone of modern viticulture in Tuscany, the first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, and the first modern red wine blended with non-traditional varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, in front of the Ornellaia, another major player in the luxury wine market with 991 points. At the foot of the podium, as mentioned, is Solaia, another leading label of Antinori, with 988 points, in front of Masseto, a wine that dominates, among Italians, in international auctions. And if the first half of the “top 10” is all Tuscan, the second half is all daughter of Piedmont. At number 6, in fact, there is the Barbaresco di Gaja (975 points), in front of another myth of Italian wine, the Barolo Monfortino Riserva di Giacomo Conterno, at number 7 (969 points). Position no. 8 for another piece of history of the enology of the Langhe, the Barolo by Bartolo Mascarello (962), followed by Conterno, with the Barolo Cascina Francia (955) and Gaja, with the Barolo Sperss (954 points), on an equal footing with the Flaccianello della Pieve of the famous Chianti winery Fontodi.
A selection of great brands, followed by others of the highest level of Italian wine, still essentially from Tuscany and Piedmont, with a Venetian influence, from the land of Amarone della Valpolicella.
And they are, in order, Le Pergole Torte di Montevertine, the Sangiovese Toscana IGT di Case Basse by the late Gianfranco Soldera, the Brunello di Montalcino by Biondi Santi, the “cradle” of the great Tuscan red wine, now part of the French luxury group Epi, followed by the two most famous names of Amarone Della Valpolicella, Giuseppe Quintarelli and Romano dal Forno.
In the “top 20” there is also the Barolo Rocche del Falletto Riserva di Bruno Giacosa, in front of the Guado al Tasso of the Tenuta Guado al Tasso, also belonging to the Antinori family, the Barolo Monprivato di Giuseppe Mascarello e Figlio, and the Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo di Gaja.
