From Riedel of Austria, this sophisticated lead-crystal decanter is both an exquisite example of glassblower's art glass art and a functional way to bring out their full flavor and bouquet of wine through aeration. The sensuous loop of glass is free blown: the glassblower forms the shape by the sweep of an arm, without using a mold. Only the most talented glass artisans can sculpt glass using this technique, and each decanter is one of a kind. Lead-crystal decanter is free blown by hand at a Riedel's family-owned glassworks in Austria, founded over 250 years ago. A thin line of black crystal accentuates the looped silhouette. Generous curves enhance the aeration of wine during decanting and pouring. Aerates red and white wines and removes sediments from older wines.
