The sale follows the estate's initial 25th anniversary auction in May, which saw £275,000 ($423,412) raised for London's Royal Opera House. Proceeds from this sale will benefit Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto.

The auction's undoubted star will be Ornellaia's 25th anniversary 2010 vintage, which sports a label designed by Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto.

Ornellaia's PR manager, Andrea Orsini Scataglini, told the Drinks Business: "London is the city for collection; it's a magical city where collecting is an art form."
