Bottle shapes generally do represent the region or varietal to some degree.
2. Burgundy: Tall bottles with sloping shoulders and a smaller punt.
3. Rhône: Similar to the tall bottles with sloping shoulders and a smaller punt of Burgundy, but traditionally less fat.
4. Rhine: Narrow and tall with little or no punt (typically brown glass)
5. Mosel/Alsace: Narrow and tall with little or no punt (typically green glass)
6. Champagne/Sparkling: Thick-walled and wide with a pronounced punt and sloping shoulders.
7. Chianti: The fiasco, a round-bottomed flask encased in a straw basket. This is more often used for everyday table wines; many of the higher-grade Chianti producers have switched to Bordeaux-type bottles.
8. Fortified: Many wines that have been fortified (Port, Madeira, Sherry, etc.) are in very sturdy bottles with a small bulge in the neck to help catch sediment.
