Delivery costs are the sole responsibility of the Customer, subject to any contributions explicitly highlighted at the time of placing the order. The payment of the goods, by the Customer, will be made using the method chosen at the time of the order. Nothing is due by the Customer more than the total of the order.

No responsibility can be attributed to NOTE DEL CHIANTI in case of a delay in the delivery of the ordered goods.

The delivery of what has been ordered is understood to be at street level except:
• for a different notification given by our customer service
• for provisions on the product data sheet
• for the explicit purchase of delivery to a floor, where applicable

Upon delivery of the goods by the courier, the customer is required to check:
• that the number of packages delivered corresponds to the number indicated in the transport document sent in advance by e-mail;
• that the packaging is intact, not wet or otherwise altered, also concerning the sealing materials (adhesive tape or metal straps).

Any damage to the packaging and/or product or a mismatch in the number of packages or indications, must be immediately reported to the carrier, by placing RESERVE TO CONTROL on the formal delivery document (SPECIFYING THE REASON OF RESERVE, e.g. "ripped packaging", "crushed packaging", etc). Once the courier's document has been accepted without reservation, the Customer will no longer be able to make any objection regarding the external characteristics of the goods received.

In the event of failure within 5 working days to collect the material in storage at the courier's warehouses due to repeated inability to deliver to the address specified by the Customer at the time of ordering, the goods ordered will be returned to our warehouses with a charge to the Customer for the storage costs as required by the courier.


Under the Italian Consumer Code, the consumer customer (i.e. a natural person who buys goods for purposes not related to a professional activity, or does not indicate a VAT reference on the order form when making the purchase), has the right to terminate the purchase contract for any reason, without explanation and without penalty, within 10 working days from the date of receiving the goods. This notification must be sent by certified e-mail or registered post with a return receipt, addressed to

Via della Mercanzia, 8
53100 SIENA

or by telegram, always within the aforementioned period of 10 days. Once the notice of withdrawal has been received, NOTE DEL CHIANTI will provide the Customer with instructions on how to return the goods, assigning a unique code for the return (CUR) of the goods, which must reach NOTE DEL CHIANTI within 10 days of authorisation.

The products must be returned intact, in their original packaging (envelopes and packaging), complete with all their parts and cases without any signs of wear or dirt.

The right of withdrawal applies to the product purchased in its entirety; you cannot exercise the right of withdrawal only for part of the product purchased;

Shipping costs relating to the return of the goods will remain the responsibility of the Customer, delivery costs and any other incidental costs identified at the time of order will not be reimbursed.

The shipment, until the certificate of receipt in the NOTE DEL CHIANTI warehouse, is under the full responsibility of the Customer.

NOTE DEL CHIANTI is not liable in any way for damage or theft/loss of goods returned by uninsured shipments.

Upon arrival at the warehouse, the product will be examined to assess its integrity. If the package and/or the original packaging are damaged, NOTE DEL CHIANTI will deduct a percentage from the refund due, no less than 20% of the same, as a contribution to the repair costs.

With the exception of any repair costs for ascertained damages, NOTE DEL CHIANTI will refund the Customer the amount paid, net of the shipping costs via the cancellation procedure to the credit card, PayPal or bank transfer used. In the latter case, the Customer will be responsible for providing bank details with the IBAN code in order to obtain a refund (Current Account of the invoice holder).


For all products purchased by the consumer Customer, i.e. the natural person acting for purposes other than business or commercial activity, the warranty is valid on condition that both of the following conditions are met:

- the defect occurs within 2 months from the delivery date of the product;
- the Customer informs the Company within 1 month from the date on which the defect was found.

In the event of non-conformity, NOTE DEL CHIANTI will, at no cost to the Customer, restore the conformity of the product by repair/replacement or total or partial refund of the price.

The Customer will be provided with an authorisation number for the return of the product (ARP) which must be indicated on the outside of the packaging, following the instructions provided in the authorisation e-mail.


The website, as well as all trademarks and distinctive signs used by NOTE DEL CHIANTI in relation to its products, is protected by the legislation applicable on intellectual and industrial property rights, therefore, any kind of reproduction, communication, distribution, publication, alteration or transformation, in any form and for any purpose, of the website contents, the trademarks and the distinctive signs used by NOTE DEL CHIANTI (such as, for instance, works, images, drawings, dialogues, presentations, music, sounds, videos, graphics, functions and site design) is prohibited.
