The Oval Wine Decanter, reminiscent of wine bottles you see in Italy, has an oval design that encourages wine aeration. The oval shape of the decanter aerates the wine more efficiently, as it pours through both sides of the "doughnut," allowing the flavors to develop more fully. The Oval Decanter helps keep sediment in the bottom of the bottle, too. Let the Oval Decanter inspire conversation as well as your wine! 6-3/4" wide, 9-1/2" tall, 34 ounce capacity.
Having been cooped up in a bottle for any number of years, especially an older wine, needs an opportunity to open up, to bloom, before it can reveal its fullest flavor and bouquet. Decanting is an accelerated form of letting a wine breath. The air in the decanter achieves change rapidly. It means you get more of what you paid for and lets you enjoy literally twice as much bouquet and aroma from the wine.
