Introducing a new generation of mouth-blown, lead-free and dishwasher-safe wine glasses, the ZALTO DENK`ART Collection, luxury stemware you could sense from your fingertips to the moment you take your first sip. (One (1) glass per order)See More Product Details
We're very impressed by this glass. The unique design with the extraordinarily wide, flat bowl and narrow opening really does make this glass work as a mini-decanter, maximizing the surface area for aeration, while capturing the nose of the wine. We did a taste test of this glass against the Riedel Vinum Burgundy, Riedel Sommelier Bordeaux, Riedel Vinum Bordeaux and Zalto Universal with a younger (2005) Italian red, and this was far and away the winner. At a significantly reduced tariff from Riedel's Sommelier line, this provides both a stunning experience and a comparatively good value.
I recently tried the universal glass in Oregon and bought eight. I subsequently bought four of the Bordeaux glass and four of the Burgundy glasses. Interestingly, the Burgundy glasses are much less consistent in shape from glass to glass than the others and have thinner stems.
I've had the glass for a few weeks now and use it often . . .It definitely feels very delicate, and I'm very careful when washing it (I always hand wash all my wine glasses. . don't want dishwasher soap cooked onto them . . yuck . .) but I do love it's thin-ness and is often what I'm looking for in a wine glass. . .I'm hoping it's as durable as they say. . so far so good! Love the look and feel. I have glasses that range from $40 - $200/per glass and this one has become a favorite.
This is a great glass, as it opens up a wine immediately. It makes it easy to appreciate its nose to the fullest. I really enjoy how it brings out a wine's character. I use it for any wine, for that purpose. Haven't tried a scotch yet, but that is a great idea. The only draw is that it is definitely NOT "diswasher safe" because the glass is so fine/ thin. My wife made the mistake of filling it too full with water and it burst in her hand. Don't fill it more than an inch or so! If it weren't such a spendy glass, I wouldn't have bothered writing a review. It's worth it, but be careful! Enjoy!
I have been using this glass for red and white Burgundies for over 2 years now. I used Riedel Sommelier Burgundy red and white glasses before, but the Zalto glasses bring out more detail and the nose and palate impressions are more precise. I notice elements that I did not notice before with other glasses. The wines definitely taste better. I have not done a side by side comparison with Riedel Sommelier, but heard that the Riedel glasses are more forgiving towards wines with a lot more age. The oldest wine that I tried so far with this glass was a 1993 Hubert Lignier Les Combottes, and it was fabulous, so maybe I need to go to even older vintages to notice a difference.
We encountered the glasses on a visit to 11 Madison and had to have them They are an amazing way to drink an amazing bottle of Burgundy or Chateau Neuf de Pape; and quite beautiful. I should mention, they're also quite thin & delicate as well as large. Our friends do run theirs through their dishwasher (on a delicate cycle) but I'd be afraid to myself.
Pretty much what I expected, extremely light for the size of the bowl. Claims to be dishwasher safe but appears to fragile to me. The narrow top and wide bowl makes cleaning a challenge. The drinking experience rivals the Riedel Sommelier Burgundy glass.
Zalto Burgundy vs Riedel Sommeliers Burgundy glass
There is a lot of hype when it comes to the Zalto wine glasses. The question becomes does it live up to its hype and compared to what? There are a few “reviews” of the Zalto’s to be found on YouTube, but most are incomplete and not useful. There is a comment about how the glass is very light and how it looks, completely ignoring what it does to the wine inside the glass. Prior to this, I had no idea that one had to be a weight lifter to use a Riedel glass. However, the lightness factor has also hit the Riedel who have their own version of a lighter Sommeliers glass. Another review compared it to the Riedel Vinum Burgundy glass that cost half as much as the Zalto Burgundy glass. So how does the Zalto Burgundy glass compare against a Riedel Sommeliers Burgundy glass that cost about 2X the Zalto? One answer is that if one is going to gulp the wine in 5 minutes or less, than perhaps the Zalto may show the wine better as one wine producer said that he only serves his wines in a Zalto. Give the Riedel Sommeliers some time and there is no question which shows the wine better. But this can also depend upon one’s preferences because the Zalto can show a thinner bodied wine that maybe more minerally. The Riedel Sommeliers shows the same wine as a much more rounded wine that has a noticeably better finish. The wine is denser in the mouth in the Riedel. One drawback of the Riedel Sommeliers is that there are so many different glasses for different grapes and wines. That can be costly. A good all-around glass might be the Zalto Burgundy. But if one wants the most out of a wine (that is, pleasure and enjoyment), then go with the Riedel Sommeliers series.
