Zerrutti Glassware - Handmade 11% Lead Crystal

 

The essence of a good wine glass is simplicity!

Good balance and a sturdy base are essential. A clear, thin crystal glass is a necessity to display the sparkle of the wine itself. A large tapered shape is unanimously acknowledged as providing the best conditions for wine to be swirled around and allowed to breathe, revealing the bouquet.

The Zerrutti mouth-blown, 11% lead crystal glasses and decanters made in Italy have been especially chosen to provide beautiful, elegant stemware that is highly functional and most importantly - very reasonably priced. The quality is superb and Zerrutti will enhance the pleasure of drinking and serving your wine.


 Zerrutti ISO tasting glass white bgd

Cantina ISO Tasting Glass (machine made)

Manufactured using a new technology in glass production, this glass has the high quality traditionally associated with Cantina Arredo products, but is available at a very competitive price. The production for this glass includes the use of a special ingredient which increases the strength of the glass, but still allowing for a fine crystalline appearance. This tasting glass is Machine Made in Italy and packaged as a box of 6.

This glass is ideal for conducting large wine tastings, when budget and space place limitations on the glasses to be used. Height 155mm.

 

 Zerrutti Ultimo Tasting Red white bgd

 

Zerrutti Ultimo Two Glass Pack

Zerrutti Ultimo Taster

The newly designed Zerrutti Ultimo glass has been developed to enhance the special qualities of Shiraz.

Although originally designed for Shiraz, once the glass was tested, the design qualities of this glass proved it to be ideal for tasting a wide range of wines.

Consideration has also been given to the actual user of the glass. Maximum size has been given to the bowl, without upsetting the equilibrium of the glass. Even when full, the glasses are not awkward to hold and retain excellent balance. The size is perfect for use with everyday meals and can be placed closely together in a table setting.

It has a proportionately larger bowl, rising more tightly at the top to allow for more vigorous swirling and to help break up the molecules which release more of the bouquet. The tighter mouth of the glass prevents the rapid dissipation of the bouquet. Height 210mm.

Two packs available.


 Zerrutti Ultimo Taster Mini

 


Zerrutti Mini Ultimo Taster

The Zerrutti Mini Ultimo Taster Glass was initially developed to compliment the Zerrutti Ultimo Taster Glass. The design qualities proved it to be ideal for tasting a wide variety of wines. The size of the glass is perfect for every-day use, whilst the narrow mouth helps contain the integrity of the wine's aroma longer.

Two packs available.


 Zerrutti Champagne Flute white bgd

Zerrutti Champagne Flute

In early times the preference for drinking Champagne was from a very open style glass, but this merely had the effect of giving a larger surface area which let the carefully orchestrated bubbles escape more quickly leaving the wine flat and characterless. Today producers believe that a fine slender glass not only shows the wine more attractively, but allows the delicate bubbles to be highlighted and preserved as long as possible.

A long steady stream of bubbles encourages the airing process of champagne. The narrow elegant conical flute encourages the bubbles to stream. A pretty sight, the length of time the bubbles continue to rise are an indication of the wines' maturity. Ideal for all Methode Champenoise and Sparkling wines, to emphasise the natural rise of the bead. Height 285mm.

 


 Zerrutti Viognier glass

Zerrutti Viognier Taster

Viognier is a different wine to most whites that we drink. It is very aromatic and fragrant but at the same time has a rich ripe full palate which is low in acid and unctuous.

This elegant glass has been designed specifically for this temperamental variety to highlight all its features to the full. It is hand blown 11% lead crystal for clarity and strength.

 


 Zerrutti Large Red Bordeaux white bgd

Zerrutti Large Red Bordeaux

Old red wines are delicate and fragile and must be treated with great care. A smooth, round surface with generous dimensions and long stem allow the wine to air well and encourage the tertiary aromas to develop quickly. Younger full bodied red wines also benefit by the features of this glass which softens the high tannins whilst emphasising the fruit and allowing the bouquet to fully develop.

Hold the glass by the base, swirling gently.

Ideal for Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rhone Valley styles, old Shiraz, great Chianti. Height 265mm.

 


 Zerrutti Cognac Glass

Zerrutti Cognac Balloon

A balloon glass is the only way to taste great brandy. The fine crystal in this glass and large bowl allow the hand to warm the glass and with a single swirl, the essential aromas are released and concentrated through its narrowed opening. Height 145mm.

Decanters

 

Wines of a certain age often contain sediment - though quite normal, it causes unattractive cloudiness in the wine and a disagreeable sensation in the mouth. The sediment should be separated from the wine by decanting. The wine should be gently poured into a decanter, leaving the sediment in the bottle.

 

Decanting not only separates the sediment from the wine, but also brings about various changes in the wine itself. Old wines are sometimes describes as "reduced" however with aeration this characteristic disappears. Similarly younger wines improve dramatically with aeration, the bouquet enhanced and harsh characteristics softened.

 

The Zerrutti range offers a choice of interesting shapes at remarkable prices, the clean lines enhancing the colour of the wine, while the generous proportions allow effective breathing of the wine.

 

 Zerrutti Classico Decanter white bgd

Zerrutti Classico Decanter with silver plated funnel

Made from 11% lead crystal, this hand made decanter is the only one in the Zerrutti range capable of decanting a magnum. It is perfectly suited to this task as it includes a silver plated funnel which carefully directs the stream of wine around the edge of the decanter to maximise breathing. It is a sensational way to display any great wine.

 


 Zerrutti Turn Decanter white bgd

Zerrutti Turn Decanter with separate silver base

A very effective design to breathe wine quickly, based on an ancient shape. The decanter is allowed to "roll" around the table gently swirling the wine allowing the entire contents to come into contact with air. Stored on a silver plated base when not in use.
