The largest of the iittala Essence Plus Collection, the 22oz. Wine Glass has a beautiful big bowl to perfectly hold mature, full-bodied and bold wines. Designed by Alfredo Häberli, he was struck with the idea that wine glasses should be created to accompany particular flavors and not colors. This led him to create the Essence Plus Collection which celebrates "character before color".

Great for entertaining, this set includes four glasses so impress wine enthusiasts as you sip from the delicate and feminine shaped glassware with pure enjoyment.
