The most important functions of this Decanter are to ensure that wine is properly aerated before serving. The Breathing Decanter from Ravenscroft's Decanter collection allows young wines to reach their fullest potential by increasing the wine surface to air ratio after a pour. The shape of the Breathing Decanter lets the wine swirl freely during the pour, further activating oxidizing properties. As with all of Ravenscroft's fine crystal wine products, the Breathing Decanter is hand crafted from the finest brilliant lead-free crystal in Europe. Height: 8 in. Width: 7 in. Capacity: 40 oz.
