The first Italian is “Gaja Barbaresco DOCG, Piedmont, Italy” followed by Masseto, Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, Tignanello and surprisingly by my friend’s Amarone Nadia Zenato.
The vast majority of the famous names on the list are those of the “sacred monsters” starting from the grands crus classés: Lafite, Latour, Margaux, Mouton, Hout Brion. There are the symbols of enology in their countries Grange for Australia, Opus One for the United States, Diablo Casiller for Chile ….
