Italian Pewter Tasting Dish with Ring Handle

Part of the Lugana range made by Italian craftsmen specialising in traditional and contemporary pewter wares. It is cleverly 'antiqued' to create a gently aged surface, complete with craftsman's touch mark.

This striking bowl is in the style of a traditional tastevin wine tasting dish - shallow, with a ring handle, for swirling and sipping.

Wine tasting has been practiced ever since humankind has produced wine in order to gauge quality, and allow the practice of wine-making to progress and improve, however, ever since the 1300s, a more established methodology has evolved in order to evaluate the quality of a wine. Sommeliers, and other professional tasters, such as wine buyers, have created formalised techniques and an established terminology to evaluate and describe the characteristics of a wine.

There are five key ways to 'taste' wine: see, swirl, smell, sip and savour in order to appreciate the colour, aroma, taste and aftertaste, which enables one to explain the properties of the wine; its clarity, character, complexity, suitable drinking occasion and potential for ageing and storage.

Diameter: 11cm

Comes in a gift-boxed with a guarantee card and instructions on how to care for pewter.
