1970 Borghini Chianti...

Posted by Hysch, Dec 10, 2010.

I have a 1 gallon, green, ribbed bottle of 1970 Borghini Chianti, unopened, and was wondering if it is worth anything other than bar decoration?

A decent amount of people collect those funky Borghini bottles.  The wine itself isn't worth anything much.

I always figure an inverse relationship between the novelty factor of a bottle and the quality of the wine inside.  Shaped like a fish, cat, leaning tower of Pisa? I'll give it a pass.  Now, those bourbon bottles, the product was the same... but I think those are considered more valuable if unopened, too. (Okay, I have never seen a bottle shaped like the leaning tower.  It would be a good gag, though.)
