What kind of wine glasses for Italian reds?
Hello, I am just wondering what kind of wine glasses you use for italian reds (barolo, brunello, chianti, etc...) Should I use Burgundy glasses or Bordeaux?
Burgundy glasses for Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo (Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara, Langhe or Roero Nebbiolo, etc.)
Zinfandel glasses (Riedel Vinum 416/15) for Sangiovese (Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Toscanos, etc.), Montepulciano, Lambrusco, Dolcetto, Primitivio.
There is a Vinum Brunello glass that would probably be best for real Super Tuscans also.
Bordeaux glasses for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, etc.
Syrah glasses for Barbera.
I only use three for them all - Burgundy, Zinfandel and Bordeaux.
For those wines, I usually use my Riedel Vinum Bdx. stems. I recently had several Barolos in the Vinum Burgundy "balloons," and then in the Bdx. stems, and I liked them in the Bdx. glasses better.
