DetailsThe graceful, soaring Riedel Face to Face decanter features two concave profiles facing one another in the interior of the vessel. This innovative element doubles as both a bold design and as paddles. By shaking the wine until a foam cap develops, it achieves the maximum effect of oxygen on young tannins. The result is more satisfying, intense fruitiness on the mid-palate and a more rounded texture.
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.
