Chianti Melini wine; grandi cantine in Pontassieve, Firenze. The Chianti wine from the Pontassieve near Florence, Italy. he Melini Winery dates back to 1705, and is one of the Chianti region’s oldest and most historic wineries. Late Melini winemaker Adolfo Laborel Melini introduced the first "fiasco strapeso" (straw flask) in 1860, thus allowing his container of tempered glass to become resistant to the pressure of a cork inserted by a machine; Chianti could now be more easily be transported to customers near and far. The estate began in 1705 in Pontassieve, a commune 9 miles (14km) east of Florence, where the Melini family established a winery and began producing Vermiglio wine. In 1860.

The image features a monk inspecting a glass of his Chianti wine. The company released a similar image about 1949 with a younger looking monk holding a glass of wine, again inspecting in; apparently in the same wine caverns.
