Hand-blown crystal wine glasses with exclusive advantages that other wine glasses can't match. Glasses are blown in Turkey of lead-free Crystalline quartz. Etched with the Rabbit symbol of quality assurance, the Glass is colorless with exceptional clarity and brightness. ¿A tasting lip on every glass...This graceful outward curve to the rim of the glass is functional.It enhances the appreciation of wine and champagne by directing it to the front palate. Super-size red wine glasses (33 and 34 oz.)¿This is the extravagant size favored by wine connoisseurs, because their high surface evaporation rate fully releases a red wine's bouquet.Bowls of Bordeaux and Burgundy glasses are shaped to emphasize the merits of those wines.
Medium- to full-bodied red wines need a wide surface area to fully release their bouquet, hence this monumental wine-specific glass from Metrokane. Ideally designed for Bordeaux, Cabernet, and Merlot, the 33-ounce glass provides the appropriate bowl girth and curvature that wine connoisseurs expect. Furthermore, the flared tasting lip directs the wine to the front palate, enhancing the total sensory experience. The set consists of 4 glasses.
Metrokane, maker of the renowned Rabbit corkscrew, etches the base of each glass with a tiny Rabbit icon as a symbol of quality. Hand-blown of remarkably clear lead-free crystal, the glasses are dishwasher-safe, yet the stunning size, 10-3/4 by 4 inches, may preclude them from fitting in most dishwashers. Metrokane also produces crystal specifically designed for medium- to full-bodied reds, sparkling wines, and dry white wines. --Ann Bieri
