ZALTO- Proclaimed the "new, cool wine glass to covet" by the LA Times, and voted the finest wine glasses in the most comprehensive 'blind' taste testing of the world's finest stemware in December 2009 by a panel of top sommerliers and wine professionals. Glasses for the true wine lover and bon vivant, Zalto glasses are handcrafted in Austria, mouth-blown, dishwasher safe and lead-free. From the first touch, each Zalto glass distinguishes itself from all other glasses. From the perfectly executed balance to the extraordinary design, the achievement of the Denk'Art line are glasses that seem nearly too delicate to hold, and yet they are made for just that. This is glassware that stands at the rarefied point where form meets function. This is art. The development of the Denk'Art series was as influenced by the earth as by the universe beyond. The curve of the bowls are tilted at the angles of 24?, 48? and 72?, which are in accordance to the tilt angles of the Earth. The ancient Romans utilized this triumvirate of angles with their supply repositories, finding that produce stayed fresh for a longer time, and that it also showed improved taste. Due to these cosmic parallels, Zalto believes that a wine can reach its utmost potential in a Denk'Art glass, developing everything that is possible in the nose as well as on the palate. Technical perfection is the basic principle of the Zalto Glass Manufactury. Zalto Glasses have always been produced following a tradition of using only the most highly skilled glass-blowers working with a selection of the best raw materials. This tradition, and the resulting fineness of each glass, echoes the delicate virtuosity of the great Venetian glass artists of the Renaissance.
