The Vinum Burgundy glass is excellent for full-bodied red wines (more than 12.5 percent alcohol) with high acidity and moderate tannin.
This glass directs the flow of wine onto the zone of the tongue which perceives sweetness, thereby highlighting the rich fruit and tempering the high acidity of the wine. The large bowl captures all the nuances of the wine's aroma.
Experts with the world's most discerning palates helped develop Riedel's Vinum series, a collection of glasses designed to flatter specific types of wines and liquors. These elegant 24% lead-crystal glasses showcase the best qualities of red Burgundies and other medium to full-bodied wines made from Pinot Noir grapes, as well as Italian Barolo and Barbaresco wines.
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 work shops 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.
The generous bowl provides ample breathing space for the bouquet to develop, while the slightly flared rim directs the flow of wine to the tip of the tongue, which allows you to appreciate the balance of fruit flavors and gentle acidity. A family-owned company since 1756, Riedel produces the machine-made Vinum series at its factory in Germany.
