Alessi Alberto''s Vineyard Tasting Glass Set
Set of two universal tasting glasses in crystalline glass. The Eoos group of Austrian designers makes it Alessi bow with the Universal Tasting Glass. I love this glass for the humor behind its paradoxical approach, but also for the legitimacy with which a theme that has almost become grotesque in the world of the Arts de la table has been knocked down. I still remember what late lamented Italian wine expert Luigi Veronelli used to argumentatively say to me when arguing the analytical approach: to achieve the theoretical fulfilment of this approach in tasting glasses, you should create a different glass for every wine of the same grape made by different producers…as well as distinguish each vintage of the same wine and producer from each other The Eoos Universal Tasting Glass is essentially a synthetic glass with a double interface, therefore suitable for tasting a notable number of different wines: half of the rim points inwards (holding and concentrating the aromas) whilst the other half opens towards the external (freeing the aromas to oxygenation). Manufactured by Alessi.Designed in 2009.
