One of Italy’s world renowned Super Tuscan wines, Marchesi Antinori’s Tignanello has shown some very impressive growth in recent years. Available for purchase in January 2014 for around £495 a case, the 2009 Tignanello grew in value by 9% the following year to reach a value of £540. The next year saw just £40 added to the value of a case but performance picked up over the next two years reaching a market value of £668, a 35% growth against the 2014 purchase price. As the secondary picked up, the gains continued and after a full five year hold the market value has reached £850 representing a 77.8% growth, or 15.5% CAGR over five years. With such an affordable unit price you should consider buying multiple cases in order to maximise your potential returns.
