Waterford Lismore Nouveau Decanting Carafe is purposefully designed to aerate wines prior to serving, this crystal accent piece enhances both white and red wines. Decanting allows wine to attain clarity and color while enabling the flavor to develop. The Decanting Carafe is shaped to achieve most favorable results from the decanting process. The long, slender neck enables the wine to run unreservedly down the sides, while the flared base permits air exposure to a larger surface area of wine. Designed to add casual elegance to every day use.
