How to Drink Wine Like an Italian.
Wines from the Italian region of Veneto are perfect "everyday" wines to accompany meals. They are like an old marriage: comfortable, agreeable, and without pretense. Bàcaro is a Venetian word for a humble tavern serving simple food and young, inexpensive local wines in delightfully charming and informal glasses that capture a nonchalance the Italians call "sprezzatura." The clever simplicity of stemless wine glasses personifies that attitude. Introducing to the American table a set of four 5 1/2-ounce stemless wine glasses that prioritize function over form, without pretentious flourishes. There is also something tactile and comforting, a satisfying degree of purpose about these small peasant glasses, just right with humble food shared in a casual setting, and easier to store and travel. Offered in a Gift Box Set of 4, for keeping or giving.
