The wine glass exclusively designed for Consorzio Alta Langa has been presented at Fontanafredda on 21 November 2012,

during the Communication Project “Piedmontese Pride” that includes a series of local and international events aimed at promoting the prestigious Piedmontese vintage spumante traditional method. Since excellence attracts excellence, the highlight of the project was the collaboration of Consorzio di Tutela with Giugiaro Design for the creation of “Grande”, a magnificent tasting glass, exclusively designed for Alta Langa.

To complete the glass is a spiral engraving on the stem for easy grip in order not to place fingers or the whole hand under the bowl and on the foot – beside the producer’s brand, the German Spiegelau – characterized by a particular shaping of the glass reminding of the gentle hills of Piedmont, is the signature “Giugiaro for Alta Langa” to make “Grande” a truly unique and exclusive glass.
