As a regular wine drinker, I have my share of gadgets. Most wine drinkers know that aerating a wine will bring out its best flavor. There are a number of technical reasons why, but I won't go into those here. To aerate a wine is to expose it to oxygen. There are a number of ways to do this, but many of them take a bit of time. A wine aerator is the perfect option when you don't want to wait. Wine aerators are designed to give maximum exposure to oxygen instantly and will shorten the post-corking wait time to achieve the wine's best taste. This wine aerator by Vittoria is easy to use and because of its unique design is more effective than most. Most aerators connect to your bottle. This one does not, which means wine is poured first into the decanter (1 step aeration) and then through the sifter (2nd step aeration). For this reason, I believe it's a bit more effective than others I've tried. Of course the negative to this design is that you risk spilling a bit of wine at you transfer...
We have good friends that are wine enthusiasts and they are the ones that originally showed us the wine aerator. I've seen them in stores before but honestly thought they were just another useless gadget. They're not. When you pour the wine through an aerator it allows the wine to breath which enhances the flavor and gives the wine a smoother finish. This aerator is a great size - not too big and not to small. And it's easy to clean. This would make a great addition to a gift basket with a bottle of wine and a few other gadgets. As I said at the beginning - it's one of those items that you think is not necessary until you use one.
I did receive this aerator deeply discounted in exchange for an honest review. These are MY opinions on this product.
This is a very nice aerator! Well made and easy to use. It comes with a stand for storage. The aerator itself fits nicely in my hand for easy use. I would recommend! I received at no cost for my honest opinion.
