RIEDEL Veloce uses the latest manufacturing technology to create products that feel handmade but offer the precision of machine production. With a lighter and finer profile, the glasses are ideal for new world wines and feature a 100mm diameter base inscribed with the designated grape variety.
The Cabernet glass is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin. This glass shape has been redeveloped as part of this collection. Its diamond shape works beautifully for big and bold New World wines as the extreme angles offer more space to develop aromas. The generous size of this glass emphasises fruit, smooths out the rough edges and bitter qualities of the tannin, and allows wines to achieve balance.
Machine-made and dishwasher safe.
