Italian Wine Glasses
I suppose any wine glasses made in Italy can be called “Italian Wine Glasses.” But that’s not what I’m talking about. There are traditional stemless glasses that are used in some trattorias and other unpretentious Italian restaurants and those are Italian wine glasses. Sometimes called a bacaro, it holds 5 ounces which is about what you’d get in a typical stemmed glass.
It’s a casual way of serving and I think that’s what’s good about these glasses. Wine is an everyday part of a meal and not just for special occasions.
Shaped like a tumbler or highball glass but a lot smaller.
They hold just about the same amount as you’d pour into a stemmed glass.
