Red wine needs to breathe to allow it to open up, release its intended aromas, and of course, make it taste better. Vinturi's patent pending design speeds up this process by instantly aerating with ease and convenience. It delivers recognizable improvements immediately: better bouquet, enhanced flavors and smoother finish. Perfect aeration in the time it takes to pour a glass. It couldn't be easier. Comes with a no-drip stand. Made of acrylic. Aerator and stand are dishwasher safe. The glossy, clear acrylic is elegant and clean. But do note that there are two slight fold lines that extend upward from each air hole. These are normal. During manufacturing, material folds around rods and wraps back, and this causes the fold lines.
From the manufacturer
Red Wine Aerator
Vinturi’s patented design draws in and mixes the proper amount of air for the right amount of time; allowing your wine to breathe instantly. When wine is poured in the Vinturi, its internal design creates an increase in the wine’s velocity and a decrease in its pressure.
This pressure difference draws in air, which is mixed with wine, for perfect aeration. The Vinturi Red Wine Aerator delivers a better bouquet, enhanced flavors and a smoother finish
