The Sisigia Sassicaia 2009 is in second place and has increased in price by 14.2% since January 2020. The other vintage of this Super Tuscan, Super Tuscan 2010, has also increased in price by 12 percent. Tina Tignanello 2010, on the other hand, has increased in price by 11.9%.
Giacomo Conterno, Barolo Riserva Monfortino 2000, appreciated by 8%. The winery"s 2013 vintage also performed well, becoming the highest-valued wine of the year so far.
