Despite its varying popularity around the world, zinfandel grapes are here to stay. These grapes are dark in color and are made to produce red wines as well as white zinfandel, a type of white wine and Rosé. While browsing our selection of wine glasses by type, it is important not to overlook these zinfandel wine glasses.
Typically used for red wines, these glasses have a traditional tulip shape much like Bordeaux glasses. Since red zinfandels are known for their very high alcohol content, zinfandel wine glasses are able to open up the aromas and flavors of the wine that are hidden behind the high alcohol content, tannins and acidity. The glasses temper the alcohol while enhancing the fruit and spices in the wine.
Since zinfandel, also known as primitivo grapes are grown in the United States, Italy and Croatia, a wide variety of flavors can be tasted depending on where the specific wine comes from due to soil consistency as well as uneven ripening that is common with the grape. When tasting zinfandel, it is important to take this into consideration along with the fact that the grapes pick up fruit flavors like raspberry in cooler areas as well as the blackberry, anise and peppery notes that can be detected in varieties from warm climates.
