Kantharos is a wine that surprises the palate, just as the ancient vases of Canosa surprised the Italian poet Giuseppe Ungaretti :
“M’hanno scoperto in quella vetrina tutta la Puglia in un miracolo d’arte popolare: il miracolo di Canosa.” (Giuseppe Ungaretti, Alessandria di Egitto, 1888 – Milano, 1970).
“I discovered in those glass cases all of Puglia in a miracle of popular art: the miracle of Canosa.”
The Kantharos is the prototype of the modern wine glass and this collection shows how since ancient times the art of wine tasting has been an integral part of our daily lives.
