Barolo Monfortino, Amarone Quintarelli, Barbaresco Roagna, Brunello Case Basse, here is the list of the most expensive Italian wines from 1287$, downwards
There are a fine number of rich consumers who buy wine just because it is very expensive. The price is a simple message, clear but with many symbolic components such as exclusivity, prestige, luxury … perhaps intrinsic quality.
THE MOST EXPENSIVE ITALIAN BOTTLES DETECTED BY WINE SEARCHER
Sometimes it is enough to determine the choice of bottle, especially when they are to be gifted.
Italian wine offers a huge range of prices, types and quality levels. The winning element is the relationship between the intrinsic quality and the sales tag, which is better than bottles from the rest of the world. Italy knows how to create millions of small wine masterpieces, within everyone’s reach and in recent years has been able to increase the international reputation of denominations and individual brands arousing the interest of collectors and investors: Brunello, Barolo, Amarone, Sassicaia, and Masseto …
From this new interest of the richest segment of the market towards Italy comes the WineSearcher ranking regarding the most expensive wines present in the huge portal that brings together the price lists of all the major retailers in the world. The list is published every year and shows us a rather stable situation highlighting how collectors are fond of some brands and continue to buy them.
