Riedel Vinum Series - Pinot Noir, Burgundy - Set of 2 6416/07
Time Magazine: "The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile's pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty."
Wired For Wine: Vinum is the first machine-made glass to based on the characteristics of grape varietal. The brand was developed in tasting workshops where the content commanded the shape. Vinum is executed in lead crystal, machine blown in Bavaria, Germany.
Riedel: "The Vinum Burgundy glass is excellent for full-bodied red wines (more than 12.5 percent alcohol) with high acidity and moderate tannin. This glass directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thereby highlighting the rich fruit and tempering the high acidity of the wine. The large bowl captures all the nuances of the wine's aroma."
Varietal use: Barbaresco, Barbera, Barolo, Burgundy (red), Gamay, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir.
