The Ideal Glass

The Bordeaux glass is perfect for a bodied red wine.

It is taller than other red wine glasses, and has a slimmer bowl.

The large size of the glass allows the bouquet to develop. It smooths out rough edges, plays down tannins, and allows the wines to achieve balance.

The slimmer bowl sends the wine directly to the back of the mouth for maximum taste.

Veneto

Veneto is famous for its capital Venezia, and the wines Prosecco, Soave, and Amarone.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
