Luigi Bormioli – Vinoteque
A professional range of stemware, offering high sensorial perception of the olfactory characteristics of many different wine varietals.
Designed specifically to enhance and satisfy the five senses of smell, taste, sight, sound and touch, essential to the olfactory enjoyment of wines, the ‘Vinoteque’ range is ideal for use by sommeliers and restaurateurs seeking ultimate wine optimisation.
All wines have unique organoleptic properties and need to be served in a suitable glass, in order to maximise its individual characteristics. The shape and dimension of each Vinoteque glass has been scientifically developed to balance and enhance these characteristics. The different shapes of the bowls have been expertly designed to:
• guide aromatic molecules, with the correct level of concentration and balance, towards the nose
• improve the perception of aromatic balance in the head space
• guide wine, at an appropriate flow, towards specific areas of the tongue
• enable easy rotation of wine in the glass
• provide perfect contact between the lower lip and the rim of the bowl
