A well-designed decanter is an essential for any red wine drinker, but good design isn’t just about outward appearances. It’s a careful balance of aesthetics, functionality, and materials. This modern Decanter Carafe Wine Aerator by Eva Solo combines all three perfectly. When poured into the carafe the wine goes through an oxygenating process, first passing through small holes in the integrated funnel, and then down its interior walls. This brings out the best in the wine, making for a well-rounded drinking experience.
