Vino Decanter

Fri 08 2007

vino.jpgThe real value of a good wine reveals if it has been decanted beforehand. The bulbous, generous shape of the decanter allows the liquid to extend for quite a way further, providing the best possible aeration and therefore permitting the aroma to develop in an optimal manner. The decanter’s crooked shape is an invitation to pour something out of it. While new for a decanter, this arises from a thousand-year old tradition. It is adapted from a wine skin bag, that legendary vessel which is already mentioned in the Bible. The polished neck is not only optically appealing, but also finishes off the shape of the decanter in a meaningful manner. Sybille Homann
