Wine/large bottle of red /from italy


how do i find out what is worth. bottle is listed as rare, but this still has wine and is basically perfect in condition. labled red table wine, and i think 101 fluid ounces
donominazione di origine controllata
produced and bottled in Italy 375PI-CEVIN P. DERA
BURCHINO  s.n.c.
montecalivoli italy.

side lable , URICHINO

Does the bottle have a vintage date? Do you have a picture of it? From what you are telling me it's a double magnum size bottle of Chianti from an unexceptional producer. Chianti alone is not a distinguished wine. If it is old it is probably not still good and has no value. If it is a Classico Riserva from a good vintage it may be worth a few dollars. Not a lot.

I can answer most any question about wine- types, styles, grape varieties, regions, vintages, proper storage, production, wine and food pairing, wine service, decanting, proper glassware, serving temperatures etc. Regarding questions about specific bottles of wine, since I live in the U.S. my focus is on wines imported here. I can't answer questions about spirits and liquor valuations.
