VINUM (1986) became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietal. VINUM was not developed on a drawing board, but in tasting workshops based on the performance where the content commands the shape. The pleasure of enjoying fine wine starts with the right glass. VINUM is executed in lead crystal, machine blown in Bavaria, Germany.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON/MERLOT (BORDEAUX)
Recommended for: Bordeaux (red), Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Fronsac, Graves rouge, Listrac, Margaux, Médoc, Merlot, Moulis, Pauillac, Pessac Leognan (Rouge), Pomerol, St. Emilion, St. Estèphe, St. Julien

Perfect for young, full-bodied (more than 12 percent alcohol), complex red wines that are high in tannin.

This glass smoothes out the rough edges, emphasizing the fruit, allowing wines to achieve a balance that would normally take years of ageing to acquire.

The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully. The shape directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thus accentuating the fruit and de-emphasizing the bitter qualities of the tannin.
