Finding value in Tignanello  

Recent trading activity

Bordeaux has been leading trade so far this week. This was thanks in part to a parcel of Château Rauzan-Ségla 2018 that changed hands on Monday. Fellow Second Growth, Château Léoville-Poyferré has also seen action, with trades for the 2008 and 2005 vintages.

Champagne continues to trade well, with Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé 2009, Krug Vintage Brut 2008 and Louis Roederer Cristal 2008 (the most traded wine so far this year) all featuring in recent days. A highlight included an all-time high trade of Salon Le Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru 2007 on Monday for £3,000 per 3×75.

Tignanello leads Super Tuscan performance

Tuscany has featured heavily this week, with Tignanello leading Italy’s trade by volume. As we examined recently, the wine is the best-performing Super Tuscan in the Italy 100 index year-to-date, up 16.5%. It is followed by Ornellaia (13.5%) and Sassicaia (12.8%).

Not only is it the cheapest Super Tuscan, with the average case costing 44.5% less than a case of Sassicaia and 20.8% less than Ornellaia, but its average Galloni scores are higher than those two labels.

*based on the Market Prices of the past ten physical vintages.

With an average score of 95.6 points from Vinous, compared with 94.5 for Sassicaia and 95.6 for Ornellaia, Tignanello offers relative value for money.

Meanwhile, Solaia also looks good value with an average score of just over 96-points. The label has been on a positive run since July as the chart above shows. However, there are more limited volumes available in the market.
