Just as advertised! This well crafted decanter makes a design statement on your dinner table. The packaging was great, easy to get out but also secured the decanter very well. Its a high quality crystal which looks like a piece of art. The taper on the neck allows for easy pouring. The large base provides excellent surface area exposure which allows the wine to breath. We were finally able to enjoy a bottle of Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva!
Bought as a gift after looking at a bunch of options across all price points and a name brand company having a similar decanter I ordered out of stock for weeks.. but this turned out to be perfect and already well used :)
I, myself would likely not be considered a "wine connoisseur", however, I have friends that like to host. This item was bought as a gift for these friends with initial reviews all coming back positive.
I would definitely recommend this decanter as a gift for anyone or yourself.. It is beautiful, light weight and comes with it's own stand/drying rack. The indentation on the bottom makes it very easy to hold and pour.
It’s easy to clean, comes with a cleaning utensil inside. Holds a good amount of wine. And it also comes with it’s own stand so you can flip it over to hang dry. A little bulking for people not used to holding a decanter but pours nicely.
