White wine glasses with narrow bodies and small mouths are designed for drinking light or young white wines.
Small diameter mouth, allowing less aeration
Your nose does not fit inside the mouth while sipping, so you have to tilt your head back further.
The wine goes farther back on your tongue, which increases perception of dryness.
Narrow diameter body
Allows less aeration of white wines
Allows chilled white wine to remain cold longer
A stemmed base provides a wider bottom for stability, and a place to hold the glass without heat transfer to the wine from your hand
