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

I've seen it at our local Total Wine store. A neighbor has an annual Porch Party - I've taken that to contribute to the iced tub of wine because it's so fun-looking

GotGarlic, I agree, for me Torino is #1, Bordolese #2, and Anfora #3. Maybe I could start some sort of opinion poll, about this...

I can remember (gives my age away now) long, long ago, when nearly every Italian trattoria in the U.K. had red checked tablecloths and fiascos with candles, it seemed oh so romantic at the time. I had a couple at home and loved the cascades of different coloured candlewax, got most annoyed with someone when they broke it off.
