The Vinus (previously known as Zerrutti) Turn Decanter offers a very effective design to breathe wine quickly, based on an ancient shape. The decanter is allowed to "roll" around the table gently swirling the wine allowing the entire contents to come into contact with air. Includes base for storage when not in use.
Wines of a certain age often contain sediment - though quite normal, it causes unattractive cloudiness in the wine and a disagreeable sensation in the mouth. The sediment should be separated from the wine by decanting. The wine should be gently poured into a decanter, leaving the sediment in the bottle.
Decanting not only separates the sediment from the wine, but also brings about various changes in the wine itself. Old wines are sometimes describes as "reduced" however with aeration this characteristic disappears. Similarly younger wines improve dramatically with aeration, the bouquet enhanced and harsh characteristics softened.
