These Riedel wine glasses emphasize the firm tannins and cherry bouquet of Brunello di Montalcino, a traditional Italian favorite.

Also suitable for Sangiovese Grosso, the glass stands 8-5/8 inches high and has a 20-3/4-ounce full capacity. Washing by hand is recommended.Renowned Austrian glassmaker Riedel designs the shape of each glass to most fully enhance the appreciation of the wine within. Named for one of Italy’s most prestigious wines, the Brunello di Montalcino glass is the first glass designed by Riedel for a particular wine region. The large bowl and particular rim diameter allow the connoisseur to revel in this wine’s rich aromas and soft palate. And, the beautifully balanced glass lends just the right mixture of delicacy and stability to drinking pleasure. Each of the two thin-stemmed glasses in this set stands 8-5/8 inches tall and holds 20-3/4 ounces at full capacity. The pair makes a superb wedding gift or adds to an existing collection for the serious wine drinker.
Made in Bavaria of more than 24 percent lead crystal for superb brilliance and clarity, Vinum wine glasses are nevertheless affordable because they are machine-made rather than mouth-blown. Riedel introduced the popular Vinum line in 1986 and this particular glass in 1992. While all Vinum glassware is dishwasher-safe, Riedel recommends washing the crystal by hand to prevent detergent residue that can affect wine taste. –Ann Bieri
