The glasses in the Tentazioni line are designed to preserve the entire aromatic structure of the wine, mitigating the volatile alcoholic component. This allows the aromas to be released in all their glory as the wine leaves the bowl, enhancing the pleasure of tasting. As shown in the photo, the bowl is shaped to create a unique aromatic "ring" effect, preventing interference between volatile alcohol and the wine aromas. And that's not all. The double chimney holds the aromatic molecules in the headspace for a particularly long time without releasing them into the air. This enhances the fruity taste of the wine while the acidic and bitter components are minimized. The shape and dimensions of the Tentazioni glasses were conceived using an experimental process. The diameter, "D", of the free surface of the wine in the bowl (10 cl) is approximately 8 times the depth (d) of the wine. This leads to two results: High levels of wine aeration and the molecules of alcohol move rapidly toward the walls of the bowl, leaving only the aromatic molecules of the wine in the central part. This creates a "ring" aromatic distribution, as illustrated: The red lines represent the alcoholic components, the green lines represent the aromas of the wine. The wide rounded bowl allows the complex aromas to spread and aerate, highlighting the richness of their fragrances. The wine can also be swirled horizontally in the cup without rising up or leaving the alcohol on the walls which would interfere with the aromatic structure. This design allowed for the creation of specialized Tester glasses for different styles of wine, such as Orange Wines and Prosecco, and for Spirits.
