Italian term or phrase: bicchiere a luce ampia
Any ideas on this?
E' consigliabile l'apertura della bottiglia almeno un'ora prima della degustazione, utilizzare un calice di dimensioni medio-grandi, baloon o a luce ampia per permettere la diffusione dei profumi.

It is for a big red wine. It doesn't seem to be a frequently used term.
Thanks
