[ Traditional ]
The Straw flask (Fiasco) born in Tuscany in 1300 to protect the glass from breakage dring transportation and keep the wine temperature stable. It was immediately a big success of sales, and the straw flask became the traditional bottle always used in the home consumption. The Fiasco still maintains its big popularity today and makes Chianti wine be recognized everywhere in the world.
