The stemglasses of the Supremo range have been designed by Bormioli Luigi’s designers in collaboration with Centro Studi Assaggiatori (the international specialists of the wine sensorial analysis). The stemglasses are produced in machine blown SON.hyx crystal glass and with a new process making them lighter and thinner while maintaining their strength. The bowl shapes are innovative and elegant and have unique sensorial perceptions: emphasizing the wine’s aromas during their development in the bowl while lessening the alcoholic element. In this way the wine’s aromas and flavors develop pleasantly in the bowl. After 10 minutes, all wines contained in a Supremo wine glass lose the alcoholic aroma elements while the wine’s specific aromatic characteristics are enhanced to the fullest. The stemglass design is suitable for specific wine varietals. The chimney balances the wine aromas with a low alcoholic content and its cylindrical shape directs the wine to the center of the tongue. The conical shape condenses the alcoholic vapors so that in the aromatic chamber only the wine aromas will develop. The smooth connection between the conical and convex shape avoids the breakage of the aromatic molecules during the wine swirling process. The Convex surface enables a high wine oxidation on the surface with a low oxidation underneath, retaining the most delicate aromas and facilitating their pleasant development. Epicure (indentation) at the base of the bowl, shows the real wine color reflection. Permanent ultra break-resistant stem (Titanium reinforced).
