Wine enthusiast know that when consuming any wine having a glass big enough to swirl the liquid around inside is important for getting the full flavor and experience of each bottle opened. But for red wine in particular having large glasses means having plenty of space for the wine to come into contact with the air.
While every red wine should be properly aerated preferably in a crystal wine decanter using large wine glasses can do the trick as well in a pinch. With plenty of surface area not only will the glass be ideal for swirling the wine inside but will give plenty of area for the wine to come into contact with the air.
Of course there is more to picking a good wine glass for each serving than just finding the biggest bowl. There has been a whole study on wine glasses and their shapes and how each type of wine will respond to bowl sizes both in width and height. So for the wine enthusiast who is wanting to ensure they are getting the best possible experience each and every time research should be done on not only the wine but wine glasses to serve them in as well. Having all the wine accessories you need is important for getting the most from your wine.
