Question
Hi,

I was wondering if you can provide me with the values of the following wines/liqueur(I am located in US):

1. Chateau Ferrande Grand Cru De Graves 1975
2. Millefiori Gucchi su Ricetta delle Antiche Distillerie di Gernusco Mitano
3. Mastroberardino Lacryma Christi Del Vesuvio 1996

Thanks,
Maria

Answer
Hi Maria,

I'm sorry but it's difficult to see any value here as the potential value would fall some way short of the minimum thresholds set by auctioneers and merchants - the only lawful way by which you could sell these in the USA.

(1) is very old and isn't from a great vintage.
(2) is similar to Strega and was probably bought in Italy as a holiday souvenir. (Not to my taste as a drink but sometimes added to trifles. etc.)
(3) is an Italian table wine made from the local Falanghina and Caprettone grapes. (It's not to my taste either but I suggest you try it as it may be to yours.)

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
