The design of the Ravenscroft Vintner's Choice Decanter is both elegant and intelligent in every aspect. The neck widens for easy wine decanting and pouring, the wide bottomed shape prevents spillage while allowing maximum aeration of tight red wines. The most popular Ravenscroft Decanter, the Ravenscroft Crystal Vintner's Choice Decanter is hand-made in Europe of the finest lead-free crystal. Ball Stopper Included. The Ravenscroft Vintner's Choice Collection Bordeaux stem creates ample breathing space for both young and more mature wines, liberating layers of perfumed bouquet to deliver a full spectrum of aromas. This glass softens the palate attack of such robust wines delivering a soft, silky and velvety texture that intensifies and prolongs the finish by buffering the impact of high alcohol and softening the experience of acidity and tannin bringing forward the supple and sweet fruit. The large bowl (capacity 21 oz) brings out the full depth and complexity of wines made from Bordeaux varietals, while the tall, broad chimney buffers their high alcohol profile. Vintner's Choice is the definition of affordable elegance. The quality is unsurpassed and cost is such a delight to the discriminating wine lover in us all!
