Jeff Zacharia, president of Zachys, said: “We are thrilled at the splendid turnout and reception for this sale. It is a testament to the worldwide interest in remarkable wines with great provenance. Bidders responded very favorably to our featured Italian offerings which was very exciting as an auctioneer to see. Bordeaux showed continued strength as evidenced by the strong hammers.
