Riedel Cornetto Decanter

R1,995.00

The long, thin shape of the Cornetto makes it perfect for both decanting young wines and removing sediment from older wines. The slim design of this decanter means there is a smaller surface area exposed, so fragile older wines are not over exposed to oxygen.

This decanter is designed for a single bottle of wine.

  • Height: 32.5cm
  • Capacity: 1.2 litres

This pack contains a single piece.
This product is handmade. Please handwash only.
RIEDEL recommends: Use bottle cleaners to remove stains from the decanter.

Description

There are two reasons why we decant wines:

  1. Decant an older wine to separate it from its sediment.
  2. Decant a younger wine to increase aeration, revealing more complexity, and opening up aromas and flavors.

On the palate, decanted wine expresses higher levels of fruit in red wines and tends to integrate and smooth out tannins.

We offer a wide range of elegant machine-blown and extravagant hand-made decanters to honor good wines with the treatment they deserve.

Every hand-made product is crafted by highly talented master glass blowers, using glass making techniques which date back more than 2000 years.
All decanters are made from crystal glass suitable for every lifestyle and available at every price range.

Every single decanter is a must-have for wine lovers.
