This collection, made in crystal glass, is the mechanically-made version of Esperienze, with the same shapes and wine tasting technical features.
The Esperienze and New Esperienze goblets, created and designed by Federico de Majo, are an appreciated instrument for wine tasting, frequently selected and used to enhance the excellent examples of international wine production, appearing in well-known exhibitions, such as Vinitaly in Verona for example, for which Zafferano has been the official supplier since 2008.
The intuition that led Federico de Majo to design the Esperienze collection was that of amplifying the surface area with which the wine comes into contact so as to enhance the process of oxygenation.
The ripples at the bottom of the wine glass, an international patent, characterize this collection of tasting glasses in blown handmade crystal glass.
With the creation of these wine glasses the way of tasting wine has changed. The placement of Esperienze in the world of tasting today has so far reached international levels and still represents an absolute novelty in this sector.
These ripples, which by now have become the distinctive feature of this collection, facilitate swirling, oxygenation and the consecutive phases in the wine-tasting process up to the point where the perfect conditions for drinking are reached. The grooves formed by the ripples also enable the whole range of colours and reflections of the wine to be admired without having to tilt the wine glass.
This line features a technical sinuosity in shape that for sampling further refines the sensorial aspects: starting from the smaller sizes that are suitable for sparkling wines with primary aromas, and moving on to the capaciousness of the flute glasses which enhances the vigorousness of the champagnes, of the classic methods of the vintage and aged wines. Finally, the last two sizes are designed for the more important aged red wines, amplifying the aromas by means of their capacity and ample surface area.
Quality material and design, practical to use, high resistance to breakage and washing, a wide variety of proposals at a moderate price – these are the characteristics of this series of goblets, conceived to satisfy the demands of wine enthusiasts and particularly apt for use in wine-shops, wine-bars and in the restaurant business, as also in wine-food shows.
New collection Ultralight: the superlight glasses designed by Federico de Majo.
Mouth blown and handcrafted, the Ultralight collection is realized in finest crystal glass, a material chosen by Zafferano for its peculiar characteristics of resistance, transparency and return quality.
Particular attention has been paid to the shapes, studied for each type of wine: white wines, red wines, young and important wines, aromatic wines, spirits, spumanti and champagne. Most of all, however, it is the lightness of the glass worked by hand with a technique of the greatest quality and the original rim facilitating the approach when drinking the contents of the glass that go to make these wine glasses a unique product of excellence.
Probably the lightest wine tasting glasses ever produced, they are the result of the ingenious design of Federico de Majo who, once again, has managed to show his absorbing passion and skill in the search for beauty.
Ideal for different types of tasting, from the more technical methods to the more informal approaches, Scintille has been created to match an impeccable shape with elegant lines to a more discriminating implementation. Perfect as a decorative element for the table while at the same time it doubles as an excellent technical instrument that amplifies the irresistible pleasure of drinking.
Essential lines for those who love a minimal look. A low tumbler with rounded edges and an elongated, larger variation to satisfy all the needs for mixing – long drinks, soft drinks and cocktails. Both come in blown glass.
Brilliance and transparence that reveal an antique charm for this line of glasses in moulded or pressed glass which comes in two shapes: the classic tumbler which has the perfect dimensions for water, and the more capacious version ideal for serving any type of long drink, soft drink or cocktail.
