Yes, my uncle created a questionable work of art with a fiasco of Chianti. He melted a series of coloured candles, and a coat of mixed wax covered the whole bottle, I can still remember it...

Yes, this is a blessing and a curse, at the same time... like many other things in Man's life

Anyone remember these? If I recall correctly, the bottles were labeled "pescevino" ("fish wine" in English) and contained a nondescript, but drinkable verdicchio.

I don't know if they still make it or not.

I was just thinking about that same bottle! Used to collect them, and you are right about the wine, Steve.

Never saw this one, but I just discovered that this Pescevino (rose' from Sangiovese and Montepulciano, white from Verdicchio and Trebbiano, don't know about red), a wine for the Marche region, is really popular in Japan... I don't think the sell it in Italy, if you Google "pescevino marchigiano" you find only English pages.
