Cassette weight question

 Im looking at replacing my 9sp cassette and my ideal range is 13-28 which only Miche seems to make.
However in comparing it to another cassette such as a basic Shimano Alivio 254g (11-28) the Miche is 334g so 80g heavier. The Miche is about double the price, is the cassette alloy a higher quality? Im just confused as generally more expensive cassettes are lighter.

I realise I probably wont notice the additional weight whilst riding but it still seems odd to me.
