Can't we say "that wine bottle" instead of "that bottle of wine"?

I can't comment on the Portuguese phrase but in the English, "a bottle of wine" is not the same as a "wine bottle". The first definitely contains wine. The second is what is left at the end of the party. You might say that the latter has taken all the fun out of the former.
