I love Chianti bottles but not Chianti wine. I just double-checked my spelling and ran across the term for the special Chianti bottle called a fiaschi that is usually encased in a straw basket--which incidentally keeps the rounded bottle from falling over. This painting contains another of my favorite items, a kettle--especially ones made of copper. This kettle does not have a top--or maybe it used to have one but I don't know since I borrowed these items. Now I have my own Chianti bottle but I have to find someone to drink the wine since we don't like it. Any takers?
