It is important to decant wine, especially young full bodied red wines. Wine needs to come into contact with oxygen in order to release the aromas. Older wines which have been aged in a cellar contain sediment from the aging process. If you properly decant your wine, the sediment will remain in the bottle and not in your decanter!
Sommelier decanters are hand crafted by the most highly committed European craftsmen in shapes and sizes to meet all needs of the world of fine wine.
"Pure, Clean Crystal" Over the past four decades, the world of wine has experienced a renaissance in the development of wine and spirits glass design. Most recently, it was discovered that lead in glasses and decanters presents an unacceptable exposure to hazardous toxins. Long-term storage in leaded decanters can result in lead leaching into the contents. The most significant reason lead oxide is added to glassware is to aid in the manufacturing process. Despite increasingly stronger industry warnings, several of the world‰Ûªs top stemware manufacturers continue to use lead in their stemware production. Lead-free glassware is the future, and the future has already begun with Ravenscroft, the world‰Ûªs leading manufacturer of pure, clean, lead-free crystal for fine wine and spirits.
