The traditional way to decant or serve wine in italy and the south part of switzerland is in a ¼, ½ or 1 liter ceramic carafe that looks like a creamer and is called il BOCCALINO or i boccalini, if there are more than one.i boccalini are handmade and come in different sizes and colors, with an italian village, a swiss canton flag, a family name or a beautiful landscape neatly painted around it. often they get collected, hung up by their handles around the house, where they add color and atmosphere to every room.
All boccalini have one thing in common, namely their round, pointed opening on the front that looks like a “little mouth”, or in italian, BOCCA (mouth) LINO (little). The name boccalino represents our swiss-italian menu in combination with fine wines.
