Typo'ed "A glass of wine is god" because I'd actually think it's a divine entity, psh. ;)

When we render Flasche Wein "bottle of wine" in English, where is the "of" in the German sentence? Does it just not need to be expressed and is understood implicitly? Or is there a case or form of either Flasche or Wein that lets the speaker know that the bottle is filled with wine?

A glass of wine is good! A bottle is too much! :)
