This sculptural decanter draws its design inspiration from nature's own artistry, providing elegant presentation for fine wines. The elongated shape creates a generous interior surface area, exposing wine to just the right amount of oxygen. Aeration has an effect similar to swirling wine in a glass, encouraging both young and old vintages to develop their full flavors and bouquet. The decanter's wide mouth simplifies filling, while the curved handle makes the well-balanced vessel very comfortable to hold and pour. A superb example of the glassblower's art, this sparkling lead-crystal decanter is crafted entirely by hand at Riedel's family-owned glassworks in Austria. Hand-washing is recommended. 31.7-oz. cap. (holds the contents of a standard 750-ml. bottle); 5" high.
