DETAILS

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.
  • deepens and brightens the amber color of Brunello.

Recommended for: Brunello di Montalcino, Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Tempranillo

Why choose this set over similar glasses?
  • This glass was the first to be officially designed for a wine region.
  • The wide-rimmed trumpet shape brings out the best in the cherries-and-port accents of this surprisingly mature bouquet.

Frequently Asked Questions



How does the quality of Riedel's new lead-free crystal compare to its 24% lead crystal glass?

Riedel recently began the process of converting all of its glassware from lead to lead-free glass crystal, and eventually all of Riedel's glassware will be lead-free. We compared lead vs the lead-free (Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru glasses side by side, and found it difficult to distinguish between the glasses. It seemed like the lead-free glasses had thinner stems and rims, while the 24% lead glasses seemed slightly heaver in the hand. There was no discernable difference in the balance, clarity or construction of the glasses.
