The timeless charm of terracotta and its glasses

Nowadays, when we think of a good glass of wine, or simply the bottle, we automatically think of the material, which has now become part of our most common imagination, namely glass. In truth, since ancient times, the material used to produce containers such as glasses, or jugs or bottles, was essentially another: we are talking about terracotta. In fact, the use of terracotta was absolutely primary to be able to enjoy drinks, also thanks to its particular characteristics, such as filtering and the possibility of being able to decant the wine in absolute safety. The use, therefore, of terracotta, or more properly also of ceramic, was ideal for this type of use. Once upon a time, wine was actually stored in amphorae made in terracotta: however, their use has always waned over time, being replaced by more classic wooden barrels. In recent years, however, with a gradual return to tradition, it is not unusual to find producers, or consumers, who have returned to using terracotta for the conservation and tasting of their favorite drinks.
