In case you missed it, Italy celebrated its 150th anniversary as a unified state last month - and naturally, an occasion as momentous as this deserved some recognition.

Enter the "Italian Unity Bottle" (or "UNA" as it's known).

The editors over at VinoWire, a feed dedicated to news and events from the Italian wine world, promptly - and humorously - shed light on this news. "It embodies great symbolic value and it is intended to promote and raise international awareness of the uniqueness of Italian viticulture, winemaking, and the classic cultural values of the Belpaese that it represents,” according to the press release.

Unfortunately for us, only a small number of bottles were produced and the wine is not available for sale. What, do you not feel the patriotic stirrings moving you from within?
