GIRA E RIGIRA
BY FRANCO PARENTINI
FOR VETRERIE DI EMPOLI
Gira e rigira is a wine tasting glass that revolutionizes the way of analyzing and evaluating wine, interpreting the all-Italian custom of the gestures connected to its consumption, from smelling it to making it rotate in the glass. Central element of the design is a small pin “camouflaged” within the crystal of the stem at the base of the glass. With a slight caress of the thumb on the globe this solution allows it to rotate and tilt gently, giving the wine a gentle movement. In this way, Gira e rigira is able to decant the wine with a natural movement, even while talking at the table and in the most natural way. The rotation refines the evaluation of the visual aspects (clarity, colour and consistency), the olfactory notes (complexity and pleasantness) and the gustatory sensations (glyceric notes, acids, salts).
