The ideal glass for unoaked, aromatic alcohol has a widened base and a tall, narrow chimney that keeps the nose high above the heavy volatile fumes of alcohol, but allows delicate aromas to rise up to the taster. A long and thin stem keeps hands from making contact with the bowl, preventing unnecessarily warming, which would increase the alcoholic "burning" in the nose.
