 Nicely done, Bomba!

i won a couple of lots at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra charity auction. I stopped attending these in 2014 because the hammer prices were silly, so I was surprised on Thursday that many lots went for relatively reasonable prices, and some were steals. There’s also no buyers’ premium or sales tax at these charity auctions.

1 x 2000 Aldo Conterno Barolo Riserva Granbussia

1 x 1996 Aurelio Settimo Barolo Rocche

1 x 1998 Batasiolo Barolo Vigneto Corda Della Briccolina

1 x 2004 Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppi

1 x 1997 Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga Gaiun

1 x 1990 Produttori del Barbaresco Asili

3 x 1996 Isole e Olena Cepparello

1 x 1997 Isole e Olena Cepparello

The Cepparello were in one lot, and the rest were a second lot. I got the Barolo/Barbaresco for WS low, but paid CAD... so I basically paid 25% less than WS low. ($1 CAD = $0.75 USD)

Nice lots, Sunnylea57!
