Linea Degustazione
To talk about the conception and crafting of these glasses (Esperienze) gives me great pleasure. I was looking for an idea that wouldn’t follow the behavior of being merely pleasant to the eye, which is the case with so many existing wine glasses. The idea came to me while I was sitting at the table in a charming room at Morgan’s, Madison Avenue. It was raining outside, a myriad of concentric rings vibrated in the mirrors created by the puddles: a real, immediate, fulfilled idea.” Federico de Majo
The pleasure of drinking wine begins with the glass. More exactly, from the goblet, the wine tasting glass. The shape of the goblet determines how the wealth of aromas and flavours in a wine will be released. This means that a given wine will have different nuances, depending on the glass it is poured into. The selection of the right tasting glass will allow the wine to express all its particular qualities, and the nobler the wine, the more important this selection becomes.
However, functionality is notthat one of the issues to be considered, since tasting glasses also require elegance and sophistication. Zafferano tasting glasses, which are made of crystal glass, combine a sophisticated aesthetic feature with a technical content. The high quality of this material, appropriately selected for the production of tasting glasses, ensure transparency, elasticity and resistance to washing.
Linea Colorati

Culture of the design and intrinsic understanding of the working of glass: this blend of passion and experience accumulated over the years by Federico de Majo has given rise to the Zafferano collections of tumblers and tableware in coloured glass.
The collections of coloured glasses are also accompanied by coordinated accessories such as carafes, beakers, plates and fruit-stands, created with an artistic working of the glass that renders these products unique and valuable. Inspired by the simple shapes and colours of the ancient tradition of hand-worked, hand-blown glass, and yet manifesting innovative interpretations, the Zafferano products go to make an ideal complement for adorning the table with objects of value and charming aesthetic impact.
It is precisely the quality of the craftsmanship, accompanied by the Italian design, that makes these collections so distinguishable on the international market. As such, any small flaws should be considered an element of authentic added value that bears witness to the characteristics of the excellent craftsmanship here. Each single piece is marked, thus guaranteeing the originality of the product.

Linea Complementi
Developing new ideas for decorating the table with an eye on the design, the Zafferano accessories in glass offer infinite uses for each single model, as well as mix and match variations, thus furnishing the possibility to experiment a multitude of combinations of shapes and colours and a surprising variety of arrangements for your table.
The collections of objects for the table in the Zafferano catalogue come complete with a series of plates in glass, fruit-stands, vases and candle-holders, in transparent and coloured versions, created to match the collections of glasses.
