Seeking Long Neck Chianti bottles

Original Post

I have searched the internet several times to no avail and would like to find info on long neck chianti bottles and perhaps to purchase also. Does anyone know of a resource or any for sale?

Thank you!

I was in 2 years ago, and they had a big stack. Thats all I know. Maybe they are no longer made.

I don't think we are talking about the same type of bottle. Round at the base (some flat bottom, some not), some with wicker basket, some specific designs like a snake, person etc., neck reaches to about 36 to 45 inches (or more). They stopped making them in the 70's and most came from Tuscany.

I'm sorry but it sounds odd that sams club would carry them.

There is so much info on the net about collectible decanters, bottles in general and wine bottles, but nothing on these and to me they were quite unique compared to everything else.
