This is a generous glass, perfect for Brunello and other big wines with a linear character. This is a personal favorite of mine, as I really enjoy a big Sangiovese. It stands 10 inches tall with a 23.75 ounce capacity. I have dropped this glass in the sink several times and I have been amazed that it survived. It is durable, but not unbreakable as I have broken a few as well.
The Vinea is the most scientifically engineered stemglass on the market. The shape is designed to highlight the sensory perceptions of the wine contained in the vessel. There is even a dimple at the bottom of the glass that enables you to see the actual color of the wine.
These glasses are machine blown with a pulled stem, which provides strength at the intersection of the bowl and stem, as well as added resistance to breakage at the shoulders. They are dishwasher safe. But hand washing is recommended.
If you are price shopping, please keep in mind this is a case of 6 glasses. Many sources will show a lower price for 2 or 4 glasses.
