These are the number ones on the journalist Anna di Martino’s traditional analysis on Italian wine (www.annadimartino.it), published in Corriere della Economia, the financial weekly of "Corriere della Sera", resulting from the 2016 financial statements of the largest Italian companies. These are the top of the top wineries and businesses = of one of the most flourishing economic sectors in Italy, where the top 107 companies yield more than 5.8 billion euros in turnover (of the 12 billion estimated for the entire industry), 145.000 hectares of vineyards (of the total 660.000 in Italy), 61% of exports and 48% on the domestic market, 2 billion bottles produced and 11.298 employees.
The journalist Di Martino remarked that among the top companies, “once again Marchesi Antinori stands out: it is fourth in the standings, but it would be third if consolidated assets were considered, as they exceed 200 million. It is also number one for vineyards owned and profitability, taking into account the amount of its turnover compared to that of Tenuta San Guido (30 million euros)”.

The ranking also shows an increase in companies with a turnover of more than 100 million euros.
