Wine is mostly sold unbottled, but the construction of a new and more spacious wine cellar with its own bottling plant together with the 700 hl of Chianti Classico DOCG produced would allow to market up to 93,000 bottles of wine each year. The business boasts an ample and well developed international network allowing for exportation of wines in Europe, Northern America, Asia and Oceania which could be easily expanded.
