Barolo Red Wine Glass (Set of 2) - 25 cl - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter & Crystal
Perfectly proportioned for a generous sip of a medium-bodied red wine, these red wine glasses are versatile and can, in fact, be used for enjoying both red and white wines.
Strictly speaking, the design is that of a Chianti / Zinfandel glass in style – for medium-bodied wines made from grape varieties like Sangiovese or Zinfandel. The shape of the glass is designed to direct the flow of the wine to the middle of the palate, to bring out the fruit flavours and experience the complex balance of flavour, acidity and tannins. However, the glass can be considered as a good all-purpose wine glass, for enjoying mature red wines such as Bordeaux’s, to highlight the fruit and revive tannin levels, as well as benefiting dry aromatic white wines, such as Grüner Veltliner and Riesling.
These red wine glasses are complemented by many others within the Barolo glassware range, each handcrafted by Italian pewterers; all high quality crystal, with solid tactile pewter stems, to enhance your drinking experience.
