Sorry about the confusion re payment. I'll contact PayPal. The Chiani bottle is at least 50 years old. It comes in a wrought iron stand with leaves and roses to put glasses in. One of the roses has broken off and needs to be welded back on. Please see photos. Thanks, Nicole.

This is a 1965 to 1970 bottle of Chianti in decorative twist neck green bottle

with wrought iron glass holder representing a floral vine, the petals being the glass holders.

The Chinti was bottled in Italy and was imported by the Australian company Cantarella Brothers,

who started in 1947 importing wine from Italy and is now still in business as Vittoria Food and Beverage Company.

The Chianti would not be good to drink as most red wines have a shelf life of 3 years at the most.

The empty bottles are sold as decorative pieces, however. The bottle and holder has a value of $AUD80 to $AUD100.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,,,,, or Ebay.
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
