To enjoy it at its best

Serving temp.
10°-12°C
Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied white wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
