Super Expensive Bucket List Wines

So you wanted a real bucket list of wines? Read it and weep folks; all the wines you wish you could try!

Bruno Giacosa Collina Rionda Barolo Riserva

Unlike the previous wines on this list, Bruno Giacosa Barolo Collina Rionda Riserva is no longer produced. For a high roller bucket list, that’s just another reason to make the cut.

Simply put, this is one of the best wines ever produced anywhere. The 1989 can be a simply profound wine that every wine lover should try at least once in his or her life, but you better hurry. Only a few bottles were ever produced and most of them have probably been consumed already. You can get a taste of the greatness of Collina Rionda in the hands of Giacosa by checking out the non-reserve 1993 bottling, but to get the full experience you’re going to have to dig deep for one of the heavyweight greats.

Bruno Giacosa Collina Rionda Barolo: 1993 - $250

Bruno Giacosa Collina Rionda Barolo Riserva: 1990 - $900 1989 - $1,500 1978 - $1,500

  • This is a list that makes you drooling :)
    From this list I have tasted two wines in the past: the 1989 Unico Riserva and the 2001 Le Pin. I have also tasted DRC Romanée Conti before, but the 2003 vintage. Personally I would like to add to this list the following wines (all ready to drink but may improve over time): Masseto 2001,Pingus 1999, Screaming Eagle 1997 & 2007, and Colgin IX Propr.Red Estate 2002. Making a short-list is never easy and I am sure I am leaving out some wines that would easily make it on the list, but this is what comes to mind so far. If you got the money, ENJOY !!!

  • I find that one of lifes ironies as you reach your 50's is that you finally can afford to buy great wines, though at great prices, only to be told they will be at their peak between 2022 and 2034, by which time you might be six feet under!

    Certainly wouldn't be MY "bucket list" wines, but this is why we all have our own individual palates . . . besides, I've had all those, though perhaps not in these specific vintages.
