This wine decanter is an exceptionally beautiful piece for entertaining, it looks like a piece of art glass on the table and matches a variety of tablescapes. A conversation piece that adds a flourish to the table whenever serving wine.
It is a substantial, premium crystal glass, yet the horn shaped design makes it easy to handle, lift and pour. The horn shape is not just distinctive and attractive, but it helps the wine breathe, resulting in a better tasting, smoother wine. The spout is drip-free when pouring.
ADVANTAGE OF THIS DECANTER
The horn shape not only allows the wine to breathe but the act of pouring the wine into this type of the design and swishing it around a bit in the decanter helps blend the wine better, similar to the effect of when the tannins in the wine soften. Wine held in a decanter for two to three hours tastes better than wine directly only allowed to breathe in an uncorked bottle. When the wine has time to breathe in a horn-shaped decanter, it is better integrated and has a better aroma.
Despite the delicate appearance of the design and the glass, it is a relatively sturdy piece that can be passed around the table and used by your guests without excessive fear of chipping or damaging the decanter.
It is sturdy enough to put it in the dishwasher. If you prefer to wash it by hand, it cleans fairly easily, although it is necessary to allow adequate time for the inside of the horn to air-dry before putting the horn away in the cabinet after use, as drying it by hand with a dishtowel proves somewhat difficult due to the narrow spout. It cleans well without retaining stains from the red wines.
SUMMARY: I am very pleased to have this decanter, I would have loved to get this as a gift, and it makes a charming hostess gift for any wine lover. A beautiful piece to have on the table when serving wine to guests, it looks like art glass. The design aids in allowing the wine to integrate, have a smoother taste and a fuller aroma. I have no complaints. Lovely item!
