Finally a dedicated Brunello glass! I tasted-tested using several different glasses and my Brunello really was best showcased by this glass. Try Tempranillo or even Cab Franc in this glass. Recommended.
Riedel Vinum Brunello di Montalcino Set of 2, #7033
Riedel Vinum Brunello di Montalcino Set of 2 (P/N 6416/90).
Brunello Di Montalcino was long considered the world's most prestigious wine. DOCG rules now require it to be barreled 4 years, so a new glass had to be developed to accommodate the change in flavor. This is the result.
- Stands at 8-5/8", with a capacity of 20.75 oz. for an average serving size of 7 oz.
- The size and shape improve on the confining former "Chianti Classico," with oak flavors deemphasized in favor of fruit by virtue of the diameter of the rim.
- 24% leaded crystal deepens and brightens the amber color of Brunello.
