Is not present, very much the other way. The the calf, the vodjanistee on taste meat is more younger. Though in Italy love dairy calfs - their meat pink, almost white, I prefer such meat to use on karpachcho, and for other dishes, in my opinion, in it there is no taste and colour. For ossobuko in an ideal it is necessary to take meat of a mature calf, it has richer structure and the sated taste.

If to speak about traditions Kjanti should be in the stocky big-bellied bottle braided to half by a bast which is called fiasco, allowing to maintain the necessary temperature of wine during long meals.
