These are great glasses from Spiegelau. We bought sets of the vino grande red wine and vino grande chardonnay glasses and ordered up a set of these just for the heck of it. They are slightly heavier and thicker than either of the other glasses we bought, and I wonder whether this is reflective of the more rustic nature of chianti. Still, quite beautiful glasses, wonderfully proportioned, and more than ample to make even the most pedestrain red seem its most elegant. And these, too, I'm happy to report, have a wonderful ring to them: just give the rim a flick with your findernail and listen to the echoing bell-tone that comes forth and reverberates.
