Generic Murano, I think, but wait for a comment from Anita.

Fairly common. Not AVeM in my opinion. Is that the remains of a circular label? Blue and silver?

The label is certainly blue and possibly silver, I cannot remember the second colour.

Thanks. 

The writing is silver and what's left of the label is as the Fratelli Toso one on the website kane_u_pain posted.

Hi, guys. My phone and internet connection (DSL) have been down. I have a weak signal at the moment, probably a neighbor, so I'll try to squeeze a message through. Fratelli Toso judging from the shape and the label and what was already said.

AT&T won't be out until Friday. Can you believe five days without a land line and DSL. I am glad I have a cell phone.
