Wine lovers who aspire to drink from the collection of a world-famous mafia boss can purchase bottles from John Gotti’s stash — no pinky ring required.
D’Aiuto, who doubles as the criminal defense attorney for Gotti’s son Junior, has already sold one bottle of Pétrus for more than $5,000. Nine more remain in the storied collection along with four bottles of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands Echezeaux (DRC), and several bottles of Château Lafite Rothschild.
Prices range from nearly $2,000 a bottle to a whopping $9,500, though Junior plans on donating the proceeds to charity. Each bottle comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Despite the acclaim of the producers, D’Aiuto remarked that he wouldn’t be surprised if their buyers never uncork them. He described the wines as “piece[s] of living history” that have a certain “unicorn factor” due to their origins of ownership.
There’s no telling how these wines would be best enjoyed — kept in a trophy case for posterity, or cracked open at the start of a Goodfellas showing.
