For 4,000 years, Italy and wine have gone hand in hand. The Italian Rarities Collection features wines from four of the most exceptional vintages of the past three decades, including the stellar 2013, 2015, and 2016 vintages. The wines are made by top producers from Piemonte and Tuscany, including Giacomo Conterno, Soldera, and Tenuta Ornellaia. Conterno’s 2010 Monfortino and Ornellaia’s 2015 Masseto received 100 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
The fundamental investment thesis for this collection combines iconic brands, exceptional quality, increasing scarcity, and strong market performance. Tuscany is renowned for producing some of the world's finest wines, and the 2013, 2015, and 2016 vintages included in this offering were some of the best. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate has rated these vintages among the top five in Tuscany over the past 30 years.
These wines are part of a category that has shown strong performance in recent years. The Liv-ex Italy 100, an index tracking the performance of the 100 most sought-after Italian wines, has seen a 48.4% increase over a five-year period, indicating robust demand for Italian wines in the global market. This demand has been driven by more a long string of excellent vintages and the favorable quality-to-price ratio when compared to other premier fine wine regions like Bordeaux and Burgundy.
Outside of scoring and vintage quality, increasing scarcity is a factor that adds to the investment potential of these wines. The number of listings of the two wines entering their drinking windows, the Monfortino 2010 and Soldera Case Basse 2011, 16.91% and 88.37%, respectively, over the past two years. This scarcity is particularly pronounced for Soldera Case Basse, with only 5 total global listings. The diminishing supply of these wines through increased consumption could prove to be a catalyst for price appreciation, as is often the case with fine wine.
Overall, our investment team sees a strong case for this offering, given the combination of brand strength, the assortment of exceptional vintages, increasing scarcity on the market, and positive overall performance of the Italian wine market as measured by the Liv-ex Italy 100.
