The most expensive Italian wines: new ranking revealed
Wine Searcher is a search engine completely dedicated to wine. The platform, which was founded in London, brings together more than 43,000 online shops selling wine products from different parts of the world. Thanks to the information contained in its database, Wine Searcher is able to draw up rankings of the most expensive wines. The ranking is based on an average of the online prices of different vintages of a wine.
Wines from Piedmont remain firmly at the top of the list of the most expensive wines, followed by those from Tuscany. In general, however, Italian bottles have an average price of just over a thousand euros, in contrast to foreign wines.
The list of the 10 most expensive wines in Italy shows Riserva Monfortino by Giacomo Conterno in first place, with an average price of €1,165, a slight increase on the last survey when the price was €1095. In second place is Giuseppe Quintarelli’s Amarone della Valpolicella which costs an average of €1117. On the third step of the podium in the ranking of Italian wines we find Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Case Basse by Gianfranco Soldera with an average price of €861 per bottle (also up on the previous €775).
In fourth place is again one of the best Tuscan wines, Masseto, which now costs €833 a bottle, while in fifth place is Roagna’s Barbaresco Crichet Paje at €830. Until a few months ago, Roagna’s Barbaresco Crichet Paje was third on the podium at €781.
