This sale also features a “Spotlight on Italy” (lots 1447-1676). In a country with diverse climates, geography and winemaking, this section of 229 lots focuses on the Super Tuscans of Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and loads of Masseto, as well as Barolo and Barbaresco from Giacosa, Conterno and Voerzio. Do some digging in this section–there’s a magnum of ’64 Mascarello (lot 1628) and rare bottles of ’95 Quintarelli Amarone Riserva (lot 1630) so time perusing this section will be rewarded.
Lastly, I’ve got to point out the consignment direct from the cellars of Champagne Philipponnat (lots 1216-1244)–this is the Holiday Auction, after all. This main highlight here is a vertical of the famous Clos des Goisses, back to the ’52 vintage, as well as mags and jeros. We’ve also printed an interview with Charles Philipponnat to give you a look at his feelings on this consignment.
It’s safe to say there’s something in this sale for everyone! Feel free to browse the event and highlight any lots you’d like. You can share any of this information, including the infographic attached, on your site or social media.
