In November’s Cellar Watch Market report (which is accessible to all for one month only), Tignanello featured in both the table of major market movers and the table of top traded Italian wines in October: the price of its 2011 vintage gained 13% while its 2009 took 4.2% of Italy’s trade share. With buyers showing interest in this Super Tuscan, where does the value lie amongst the vintages?

As the chart above shows, the most recent vintages are amongst the most highly scored – but their prices are still waiting to catch up with their older siblings. At the same time, a look at stock availability on Liv-ex reveals a noticeable correlation between the age of the wine and volumes, with little stock available of the older vintages.

The 2007 has a score of 95 from Antonio Galloni and a Market Price of £750 per 12×75. The 2011 and 2012 – the cheapest Tignanello vintages available on the market – are also scored 95 but are available at £530 and £500 respectively: discounts of around 30%. These recent vintages may therefore look favourable to buyers – while they are still readily available.
