Description

By replacing the lead in traditional crystal with titanium and zirconium, Schott Zwiesel has created the strongest, clearest, most brilliant crystal glass available. Patented Tritan crystal retains its clarity and luster for the life of the glass and resists chipping, scratching, and breakage.

Designed with a classic, traditional shape, the Forte collection’s bowls are perfectly sized for the appropriate wine. Each glass is reinforced at the rim and both ends of the stem (where it meets the foot and the bowl) and the soft tapered bowl focuses your wine’s essence to the palate. This collection is the perfect introduction to the fine design of Schott Zwiesel Tritan crystal.

For lighter, fruitier, red wines, the light-bodied red wine glass is the ideal choice. Wider than the full-bodied red wine glass, the large bowl of the light-bodied red wine glass allows the wine to dispense to the tip of the tongue, where it is easier to taste the sweetness of the wine. This glass is designed for sweeter, light-bodied reds such as Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chianti.

Thinking of starting your wine glass collection and curious about which glass works best for you? One of our bloggers researched the subject. Click here to read her findings and which glasses she selected.

Great burgundy glasses
We bought these for every day use, but we like them so much we use them for special occasions as well. They look great - and best of all, they're dishwasher safe. Just be careful to leave a small space in between when washing them or they will eventually develop small scuffs on them. But they're so inexpensive it's not a big deal to replace them if/when that happens.

Very big
This glass is very large. I didn't read the description well. Also, it says dishwasher safe, which is why I bought. But they are very delicate and I broke one the first day trying to fit it into the dishwasher
