An improvement on the classic champagne coupe, this stem gently brings the sides of the cup upward and in, concentrating the bouquet on vintage champagnes and spumante. A flute is great for an aperitif, a simple chardonnay or prosecco based sparkler. But remember, a really good champagne or spumante is first, an excellent wine and then the bubbles are added. Because it is an excellent wine, it has a bouquet and by tapering up the sides of this stem, the bouquet is focused for you to enjoy. If you love high quality vintage sparklers from Italy or France, we urge you to try this stem.
If the wine matters, so does the glass - its that simple. Tasting after tasting, test after test, time after time, wine enthusiasts are amazed by the difference the glass makes. Inspired by a life in wine and created by Severino Barzan, Bottega del Vino Crystal wine glasses are first and foremost, wine-driven in design and creation. Each piece is painstakingly mouth blown and hand finished to the highest world standards for balance, weight, shape and the tactile pleasure of holding the stem and drinking from it. Each piece features a superbly crafted bowl with single pull stem for the best possible feel in hand and mouth. Bottega del Vino crystal is unique in that it is not fragile, indeed it is suitable for restaurant use, yet it offers the finest presentation available for your wines both in appearance and taste. There are no machines used in this process, each piece is entirely made by hand (well, really by mouth and hand). Bottega del Vino crystal provides the perfect balance between tactile pleasure and everyday practicality, unmatched by any other stem!
If that wasn't enough, this is the preferred stemware of HORNE owner, Ryan, which he and Alissa discovered on one of their trips through Italy.
