DetailsWith its soft curves, the Riedel Smile decanter's sultry form makes it a superb addition to any collection. The decanterâ€™s inverted heart-shaped base makes it effortless to hold in the palm of the hand and easy to pour. Starting from the narrow opening at the top, Black Tieâ€™s signature tuxedo line descends dramatically to the bottom. This daring decanter is mouth-blown and formed by hand without the use of molds, making each a unique work of art.
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.(Thoughts on decanting by Christian Moueix)Measurements
