In this respect, Tannico, leading e-commerce platform for wines and premium spirits in Italy, represents a unique and strategic fit with our long-term business development goals.

“By leveraging Tannico’s expertise, we will accelerate our development plans in e-commerce, an already growing channel, but set to become even more strategic following the likely long-lasting changing consumer behaviours due to the COVID-19 emergency, largely enhancing our digital capabilities. Moreover, with our support, Tannico will be able to strongly accelerate its international development and the B2B services, further boosting its already extremely remarkable growth.”
