Ratings & Reviews
The glassware is gorgeous!
We had some friends over last night, and since I have only 2 Italesse glasses, the boys got those, and the girls got the Riedel Vinum glasses (sorry!)
What I love most about these glasses - besides their clarity and thinness - is the shape of their bowls. I like to swirl before every sip, and because of the flat bottom and concave walls of these glasses, it's virtually impossible to drip when swirling. The concave shape of the bowl really concentrates the aroma of the wine.
I'm going to try the machine-made Italesse glasses, also available on IWA's site. They look similar and are more affordable, hopefully they're just as nice!
Oversized Wine Glaaaea with Inctedible Clarity
I also saw these glasses when I visited IWA's showroom in Petaluma. Originally I came to purchase Riedel Vinum Brunello glasses, but when I mentioned that the bowls were smaller than k expected, they pulled out the Italesse Red Wine glasses and the Bottega del Vino Nenetian glasses to compare. That's when we put the glasses side by side and wow, the difference in clarity was astounding! By far the Italesse glasses were the clearest and brightest and lightest of the three side by side. I'm going to have to get theses for our winery's tasting room.
The Best Lightweight Wine Glasses!
I discovered these glasses when I was visiting IWA's showroom, and they are gorgeous. The glasses were displayed side by side Riedel Veritas and Zalto, and these glasses were the lightest and thinnest of the three brands. Also nicer shape IMHO. And 50% less expensive than Zalto! The showroom rep explained that IWA is importing these glasses directly from the manufacturer, which is why they're less expensive than Zalto (no middleman). I love these glasses!
