The auction house has added six European wines to its house label.
By Florence Fabricant
Sotheby’s, the auction house, sells wine collections, has its own wine store and, for the past two years, has also commissioned 13 well-made wines from France, Italy and California with its name on the labels. It has now expanded this in-house roster to include a rosé Champagne, a Provençal rosé, a Côtes du Rhône, a pinot grigio from Friuli, and two Tuscan reds: a well-made 2017 Chianti Rùfina produced by Frescobaldi; and Lo Stradone, a super Tuscan blend from the esteemed Ornellaia winery in the Maremma region. Like the original set, the wines are well priced, from $16.95 to $39.95. Lo Stradone, a rich, structured red, is an excellent introduction at $22.95 to super Tuscans, a category with wines that often sell for 10 times as much.
