"This glass is a surprise, especially in terms of aroma density because it allows the full array of wine aromas to be perceived in a subtly differentiated way: the aromas are extended and their layers slightly staggered so that each aroma group an be more easily detected, identified and evaluated. In this way, HARMONY 53 even brings out the less bolder or secondary scents and aromas that escape the “sensorial reach” of other tasting glasses. Since HARMONY 53 enhances aroma intensity and releases also the less concentrated aromas, the glass is perfectly suited for analytical tasting.
In addition, the glass is comfortable to grip and hold, it is not too heavy in the hand, and it can be easily swirled around at a slightly inclined angle. The slight inclination of the glass will allow the wine to loosen up and “breathe” because the tilt enhances air intake. Thanks to the wide bowl and the relatively short chimney of the glass, the wine aromas are quickly released as decribed above.
Especially less aromatic wines, but clearly also heavy red wines aged in wooden barrels will exhibit this effect“, says Martin Darting.
