"Wine is the only artwork you can drink," said Luis Fernando Olaverri. Serve it in stemware that’s a veritable work of art itself. Our limited-edition Venice collection celebrates the elaborate Murano Reticello technique of glassmaking. Begun in the 16th century, Reticello is one of the most challenging and labour-intensive glassmaking techniques. Why does it endure? Because the results are simply spectacular, with a distinctive crisscross or spiral pattern of ‘milk glass’ or coloured threads. This particular hand-blown piece is actually composed of five different elements, expertly crafted and combined.
Perfectly shaped for savouring the flavour and aroma of fine red wines, this glass is an essential part of the Venice collection. It’s an ideal canvas for a liquid masterpiece such as an Italian red from Barbera d'Alba or a California cult wine like the Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon.
