Riedel decanters combine sophistication and elegance with optimal shapes for aeration.
Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging.
The Riedel Ultra Magnum Decanter is a superb piece of hand made crystal glassware. It is designed to showcase the best characteristics in a wine by providing a broad base for the wine to aerate and at the same time being a sophisticated presentation piece. The decanter stands 9 1/2" high and holds 70 1/2 oz. Made from 24% lead crystal.
