It took 11 magnum bottles (16,5 litres) to fill this huge cup; filled with spumante Asti DOGG of course.
At a recent festival known as The White Night, which is an annual celebration of wine in Spoleto, Italy, for all those who can hold their liquor, the world’s largest champagne glass made its debut.
The Asti spumante is produced in Piedmont; actually in a smaller area which includes only 52 municipalities; 9 in the province of Alessandria, 27 in the province of Asti; 16 in the province of Cuneo. Ten hectares divided into four areas: Santo Stefano Belbo, Canelli, Nizza Monferrato, Acqui terme.
