If you’re serious about red wine then you’ll have a decanter already. They aren’t just a practical tool either. A few companies add some artistic brilliance to their designs to make the decanter a talking point for any dinner table or bar.
This Black Tie Decanter from Riedel is a masterpiece of utility and design. Okay, at nearly £400 it’s quite steep, but I want one. If that’s too much you can pick up a decanter from a charity shop if you’re lucky. Look for one with a wide base, so it’s easier so swill the wine around in.
