Rare, fine wine from Italy and Spain on auction

May 14, 2023 @ 11:00 am

Strauss & Co Wine auction

An exquisite selection of highly sought-after fine and rare Italian and Spanish wine will be going under the hammer in the Strauss & Co Virtual Live Auction taking place on Sunday, 14 May.

Italy is home to a myriad of wine styles and thousands of native grape varieties. It is considered to be one of the finest and most diverse producers in the world, with a history of wine making dating back to ancient times.

The Tuscan line-up has some big names like Bolgheri, Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, including Antinori, Soldera, Masseto, Sassicaia and Biondi Santi. The Biondi Santi 1945 is rare and special in particular, recorked at the property and from a great vintage. Furthermore, the Piedmont list is equally historic with classic names like Aldo Conterno, Giacomo Conterno, Gaja, Mascarello and Produttori del Barbaresco. In addition there are more niche rarities from Galardi, Gravner, Pietradolce and more from across Italy.
Other highlights include Masseto Toscano 2006 & 2007 and Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 1985, all receiving 100 Points from Robert Parker.

Spanish wines have a long and rich history too, dating back thousands of years. Spain is also one of the largest wine-producing countries. The most popular Spanish wines include Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Priorat. Vega Sicilia is well represented with Alion, Pintia and Unico, while Muga, Lopez Heredia and La Rioja Alta from Rioja are included. The powerful line-up includes two 100 Pointer wines from Wine Advocate: Dominio de Pingus 2012 and Vega Sicilia Unico 1970.

Those keen on bidding on unique wines can either attend the auction in person or bid virtually from your home on auction day. The auction will take place live at Strauss & Co Gauteng at 89 Central Street, Houghton. It will start at 11:00.
