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.
