Perfect for young, full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin. This glass smooths out the rough edges, emphasizing the fruit, allowing wines to achieve a balance that would normally take years of ageing to acquire. The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully. The shape directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thus accentuating the fruit and de-emphasizing the bitter qualities of the tannin.
Recommended for: Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Tempranillo. Lead Crystal, Machine Made.
These glasses are suitable for the dishwasher.
VINUM (1986) became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the Characteristics of grape varietals.
VINUM was not developed on a drawing board but in tasting work shops based on the performance where the content commands the shape. The pleasure of enjoying fine wine starts with the right glass.
