The birth of a new jewel
The inspirational horizons went literally high in the making of the Zalto glasses, since Denk for many years has been inspired of the effects of the tilt angles of the Earth. The aim was to invent a glass with an unseen shape, allowing the aromas and the taste of the wine to flourish fully. Knowing that the first contact with the glass is with the eyes, the aesthetic expression was an essential element in the creation of the glasses. Thin, delicate and light as a feather were the stylistic criteria, that should provide the wine experience with elegance, finesse and a certain balance in the hand while drinking of the glasses. The unique architecture of the glasses has the beneficial effect, that the alcohol seeks the bottom of the glass and allow the aromas to be the dominating element. After over 5 years of development, the Zalto Denk’Art collection finally reached the market in 2006.
