Zalto Universal (Red & White Wine)

Features a narrower bowl (compared to the Burgundy) and is great as a small Red or all round White Wine glass. It’s a perfect ‘high-end’ tasting glass as it will show off the characteristics of all styles of wine. Ideal for full-bodied to powerful wines, which are expressive but also show minerality and smooth character. Accentuates complexity and finesse.

Especially good for: Chardonnay, Chianti, Riesling and ‘Smaragd’ – wines from the Wachau.
