Riedel's premier collection, the Sommeliers line, includes an impressive assortment of lead-crystal glasses, each developed by expert tasters to flatter a specific type of fine wine or liquor. This glass is designed to showcase the best qualities of well-structured red wines, including Syrah, Petite Sirah, Barbera, Hermitage, Malbec and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The bowl is shaped to bring out notes of toast and black olives. The narrow rim directs the flow of wine to the center of the tongue, which allows you to experience the wine's silky texture and fruit aromas, while the tannins flow to the back of the palate for a smooth finish. Artisans at the company's family-owned factory in Austria craft this exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. We recommend washing by hand. 20.7-oz. cap., 9 1/4" high.
