Italian wines to star at HK auction

An ex-cellar consignment of Gaja and other Italian wines are set to dominate Acker Merrall & Condit’s final auction of the season in Hong Kong.

CEO John Kapon said the sale, taking place on 6-8 December was the most diverse in “Acker’s history” and will, “undoubtedly cause a sensation among connoisseurs.”

The Gaja consignment features verticals of single vineyard Barolos and Barbarescos, including a 24-bottle vertical of Sori San Lorenzo Barbaresco (HK$48,000-HK$64,000).

More Italian wines are represented by Antinori, Sassicaia and Ornellaia among others.

Highlights include five double magnums of Ornellaia from 1999 to 2006 (HK$34,000 – HK$44,000), a six-litre 2004 Solaia (HK$24,000 – HK$40,000) and 24 bottles of 1999 Barolo from Cordero di Montezemolo (HK$14,400 – HK$20,000).

There are also major lots of Bordeaux and Burgundy including a vertical of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, a vertical of Haut Brion from 1945 to 2009, Margaux, Yquem, de Voguë, Leroy, Potel, Ponsot, Henri Jayer and Clos du Tart.

There is also a 10 magnum vertical of Screaming Eagle from 1992 to 2002 (HK$800,000 – HK$1,200,000).

Kapon mentioned the diversification of the market and said that this sale “is truly a great opportunity for collectors to acquire extraordinary wines to build up their collections before we bid adieu to 2012.”
