This glass is fundamentally the same as that used for white wines structured and mature, in fact you can use the very same glass. This kind of wine, with tannins, when present, rather aggressive, must mainly stimulate the inner parts of the mouth and avoid, at least in the initial stage of introduction into the oral cavity, the contact with gum because the astringency would originate an unpleasing tactile sensation. The body of the glass must also be large in order to allow an adequate oxygenation and development of aromas.
