the glass masterfully manages to promote what lies within without overpowering

Good glass and good wine are inextricably intertwined. An apt wineglass magnifies the presentation of the wine it holds – its zest, aroma and bouquet. Zalto Denk'Art balances fascinating form with an exceptional functionality, defining a new high for wineglass-culture. The Denk'Art line masterfully manages to promote what lies within, without overpowering it.

The Zalto glass invigorates all senses. Visually perfectly profiled, it combines balanced proportions with the maximum transparency. The upper edge of the wineglass is grind slickly, while the glass’ stem is fine yet firm, resulting into an unusual elasticity and a delightful resonant tone produced during toasting.

The various forms of the Zalto glass’ chalices promote or suppress layers of aromatic substances contained in wine (large surfaces easily interact with oxygen). The form also defines the intensity of fruity, acidic flavors and that of wine’s tannins.

This is why each wine deserves the right type of Zalto glass.

tradition

of glass blowing goes all the way back to the fourteenth century Austria, where the Zalto family – a glass-making dynasty – settled six generations ago. Today the Zalto House offers connoisseurs superior and state of the art hand-blown glass.

angle

when designing the curves of the Denk'Art, the developers turned to the Mother Earth’s tilt angles of 24°, 48° and 72° – utilized already by the ancient Romans to improve the taste and freshness of their supply repositories – in order to achieve the glass’ utmost potential.

delicacy

from the perfectly executed balance to the extraordinary design, the Denk’Art line seems too delicate to hold, and yet it is made just for that.

durability

despite its feather-light weight and subtle edges, the Denk'Art glass maintains the attributes of a modern glass – it is dishwasher-friendly, produced without the addition of lead oxide and clouding-resistant.
