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 big and rich red wines, aficionados will appreciate the full-bodied red wine glass. The tall, large bowl allows the wine to breathe and brings out the rich aromas. Because the glass is tall, the wine proceeds directly to the back of the mouth, allowing for maximum flavor. This glass is designed for rich, full-bodied, red wines such as Bordeaux, Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot.

  • Care: Dishwasher safe
  • Capacity: 21.1 oz.
  • Dimensions: 9" h x 3¾" w (stem is 2.5" h)
  • Material: Tritan crystal
  • Made in Germany

Great Glasses
I have owned these glasses for many years (7?) and needed to replenish.(yes, I have broken a few--they are not indestructible!). We use them almost every day and put them in the dishwasher. When the new ones came and I compared them to my old, the old still looked new; very little signs of wear and no etching. They are strong, thin and a classic shape. Great glasses

Breaks easily
I really loved these glasses. They are a great shape, made from beautiful crystal. They make wine tasting even more enjoyable. However, in the 4 months we have owned the glasses, four have broken. The bowls seem to be very fragile with the slightest touch can split. We have the light bodied white and haven't broke one of those - I believe it is a default in the shape of the red glasses. I am VERY disappointed in my purchase considering the price and advertised strength of these glasses.

Brittle
I've owned these glasses for two months. They are hand washed only, as they don't fit in the dishwasher. Three have been broken while being washed. One broke while being dried! Can't recommend these. Find a sale item at a big box.
