White wines beg a different glass style altogether from red wines. White wine glass bowl will be more U-shaped and upright allowing the aromas to be released while also maintaining a cooler temperature. For white wine, you may also want two types of wine glasses, one for younger, crisp whites and one for more mature, fuller whites.
The wine glass for younger whites has a slightly larger opening directing the wine to the tip and sides of the tongue to taste its sweetness. For lighter, fresher styles of white wine, oxidization is less desirable as it is seen to mask the delicate nuances of the wine. To preserve a crisp, clean flavor, many white wine glasses will have a smaller mouth, which reduces surface area and in turn, the rate of oxidization.
The glass for more mature whites will be straighter and taller to dispense the wine to the back and sides of the tongue to taste its bolder flavors. White wines which are best served slightly oxidized are generally full flavored wines, such as oaked chardonnay.
Optimum white wine serving temperatures are between 45-50 °F. A white wine glass should always be held at the stem to prevent warming of the drink.
In the case of sparkling wine, such as Champagne or Asti, an even smaller mouth the flute, is used to keep the wine sparkling longer in the glass.
