Aereates the wine very well, but would love a video on its use. Can you put the wine back in the bottle after aerations, how long do you recommend aerating reds and others? Product is well made, and should last a longtime (if you do not drop it! ;))
Excellent well made.
Great decanter, use it at least once a week
I have some older wines that seemed to have lost a bit of their character.So I went on the hunt to find a way to bring out the flavor in my wines.I looked at a number of decanters and picked this one.It's great.The shape is super and works super well.It is easy to grip and pour.I was surprised how little of it is filled up by one full wine bottle.You could put a couple bottles in there!It is probably bigger than it needs to be, but it is a beautiful glass piece.It is easy to clean.I highly recommend it.
Great Wine Decanter
Love to have my red wine breath for few minutes.Look very sturdy.
Hard to break
Nice carafe. Thick glass
Great looks : easy pour
This is all you could ask for in a wine decanter. It looks great and is crystal clear. The thumb indentation in the bottom makes for an easy pour.It is stoutly built and will take the bumps and bangs of heavy use.
Thick crystal, beautiful luster, classic shape
I bought this as an anniversary gift for my wife after reading dozens of other reviews. I was a bit worried about the thickness but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. I'll measure with calipers and update soon but I'd say its around 1/4inch (6-7mm). It seems robust enough to sustain a short fall onto a softer hard surface like a wooden table. Despite being so thick, it is quite refined in its shape. As such and with the right light, it can be both a center piece or disappear on a full table. We don't drink much, but we do like to entertain and we have used it for both water and wine. It won't however turn the former into the latter. The stopper fits well and the whole thing is easy to wash with a soak and a simple bottle brush, though there may be a better tool for the job. In any case, the value here is as good as it is beautiful. Looking forward to a lifetime of use.
Very nice, very heavy, and very big
First, no decanter is going to be easy to clean. Get used to it. Rinse it out, pour the water out, get up the next morning and pour the water out again.There is really no easy way to clean or dry any decanter. Now for the good stuff. This is a big decanter. A standard 750ML bottles of wine will not fill it to the widest point of the decanter, two bottles would probably do it perfectly, but I haven't tried it yet with two bottles of wine. Maybe when thecovid crap is done, I'll have friend over to see. The glass is good and thick, which I think is a good thing.Seems to be very well made and with the punt, it's easy to handle with two hands. I've hit the rime with a couple of bottles and have not chipped it, but it is glass after all, so be careful. I'm very happy with it, and would buy it again.

Attractive piece at a good price
A good price for very nice wine decanter, attractive and good quality.
This is one of the best
Wine enthusiasts recommend decanting red wines in order to fully enjoy their character.I've tried several different carafe designs over the years and I find this decanter to stand out from the rest by far.The design really helps in fully "opening up" the wine and allowing it to breathe.I like that I can decant two bottles of wine on those occasions when I am entertaining multiple guests, but yet it is not too large to use every night when it's just wine for two.
Very easy to hold and pour. Wonderful product, and elegantly beautiful
This is a clean simple decanter, substantial but, not awkward or too heavy.I will say that the stopper does smell strongly of rubber.Not a deal breaker.

I have not used it yet, but I believe it will meet and exceed my expectations.Just by inspecting the item it shows an excellent quality.
This is sturdy and beautiful. It also works well.
Love this one. The glass is thick and it is not too big or delicate. Very nice for the wine. It has a pretty raised base and is easy to pour.
Fun wine toy whilst one imbibes
Fun accoutrement adds to the tradition, ceremony, and presentation of the wine drinking experience for oenophiles.
Does the job and looks great!
Seemed like a nice decanter. It was. Worked well and easy to clean. I just rinsed with distilled water and no water spots.
This is the one!
Beautiful design, very well made, and the perfect way to decant red wine. I haven't seen a decanter at any price I like better than this one.
Beautiful Wine Decanter
This decanter is very modern in looks.Great buy.
Love this !
I love it!!!
Worth the price
We had wanted a wine decanter for a while now and finally made the plunge. This one looks great and is very sturdy. It isn't something I'm worried about bumping and breaking. It was a gift for my wife and she is very happy.
Highly recommended. Good value.
Love this stylish decanter. Would have liked a cleaning brush to go with it, but it is a beautiful and functional piece.

Allows filtering by the bottle
I bought this so I could easily filter the sulfites from a bottle of wine at a time. It made it so easy. Looks great. Easy to pour from. Very easy to clean. Love it!
Ben A. Hinds
Nice.Heavy duty.I don't think it will chip or crack.
Great present but we used it one time and it chipped in two places on the mouth. No idea how this happened but it was hand washed and placed gently to dry. No tipping or items hit it. Next thing we knew it was chipped.
Couldn't be Better!
This was a gift for our son-in-law who is a bar director in an upscale restaurant and is working up the line of sommalier levels.He loved it!Opened it Xmas morning and we used it that same day for the red wine we were having with our prime rib.Easy to pour with the punt, looked beautiful with the red wine in it, wine tasted great and cleaned up easily for him to take home at the end of the night.HIghly recommend!
Love that it has a cover!!Great size.... easy to pour!!
Makes for better wine
I've had both pinot noir and syrah with the decanter and it's much better than right out of the bottle.Easy to clean, too.
Great for gifting.
Easy to clean and love the stand. Very durable yet elegant. Will withstand much use.
The best decanter ever. The sealable top is a really nice feature. Love it.
It's perfect...made to last!
Great . wine decanter...easy to clean and very durable, yet looks elegant! Great purchase!

Lid isn't very good
The decanter itself is great, large surface area to let the wine breath, stopper is slightly too large for the hole, pushing itself out of its sealed state. Would recommend getting a cork ball put an at least semi air tight seal on it.
Elizabeth M. Burke
Love this Decanter.I donâ€™t do many reviews but I was really impressed.
Works very well.
A very attractive, substantial decanter
This decanter is great.It is durableNot only is it attractive on my bar it is durable and easy to handle and to clean.Coupled with the Vintorio aerator it improves the taste of both red and white wines.
Great Wine Decanter
I bought this a gift for a friend. It is very beautiful & the friend was very happy with. I know he will get years of good use out of it.
Would be perfect if cap stayed in
Overall, the decanter is great. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because the cap does not stay in no matter what anyone tries. It goes in initially, but eventually pops out.
A Stopper is Included!!
I really like this decanter, and I especially like the fact that it comes with a stopper. No buyerâ€™s remorse with purchase!
Very nice product
Very nice product
Great. But Wash Thoroughly First
TLDR: Great decanter. Buy it. Wash it thoroughly before use so you don't waste your wine.First, this is a great decanter. However, and I know it should go without saying, but it needs to be washed thoroughly first. I rinsed it with water with haste so that I could enjoy my wine. I poured my whole bottle of a nice Caymus Special and poured my glass after some aeration time was allowed. The wine was definitely aerated. It also had completely received the styrofoam-like flavor that the decanter had remained slightly scented of.
This is a very nice wine decanter. Even better in person. Very thick at the top. Stopper is very thick too. I just love it.
Works very well
Design of this product is better than my other wine decanter I have. This works well and is easy to hold. The glass is thick enough that it should be durable.
Exactly the wine decanter I wanted.
The quality and weight of the decanter feels substantial.Pleasantly surprised, would buy again as a gift.
This decanter fits our wine uses perfectly. We entertain a lot and this decanter seems to hold up well to frequent uses on our granite countertops.I like the rubber stopper in case any wine doesnâ€™t get used â€œthat nightâ€. I like to the thickness as well in case I accidentally hulk out it seems like it could hold up to unexpected surges in grip strength.
A great Gift
I gave this decanter as a gift.My wine lover is enjoying it.
Love the design of this decanter.Really does a great job of decanting in a short period of time.Easy to hold and pour with either hand, makes serving super easy!Really enjoy my decanter.
J T Rice
This was a gift and it was well received.
My wife and friends all noticed the difference and was a great hit!Very well made and makes that cheap bottle of wine look really nice.
This decanter is very nice thick crystal. I love how it is easy to hold from the bottom and not have to hold the neck.

Great Decanter - Very Pleased
This is the best wine decanter I've ever seen.... all the advertising is spot on.... it works great... pours great.... and is easy to clean.I have some wines that definitely need to breathe.... like 2010 Syrah that need to really "breathe" before the balance comes out.One feature I really like is the indented bottom.... easy go grab & pour as well as adding another element to the aeration of the wine.It's also very good quality... heavier crystal... looks as great as it works.
This was part of an office gift
This decanter was part of a office gift. The gift was 'stolen' several times showing that many people were interested in the gift. The person who won the gifts has reported good things about the decanter.
Heavy and sturdy
Thick glass, quality silicone lid.
Glass is half full
Bought as a gift for a friend.Solid quality glass, handsomely blown.Winner.
We've been really happy with this decanter and have used it several times. It not only looks great but does a great job and cleans easily.
The product is very durable. The base is large and allows for the wine to decant well. By allowing the wine to breath well, weâ€™re able to have better tasting wine. It is a really beautiful product that look a great on the table. Looking forward to enjoying many years of wine served from this decanter!

Heâ€™s got, sheâ€™s got, why not you
The best decanter I owned so far. It is super durable, easy to hold, and sleek in design, plus the cap is just - perfect.I am getting extra for close family for Christmas gift.Thank you for upgrading my wine experience to the max!
I ordered my vintorio wine decanter today and received it on the same day. Really pleased with the quality of the product, very classy and durable. Canâ€™t wait to use this during the holidays!! With Xmas around the corner, this would be a great gift idea for those who enjoy wine!!
Good quality, great gift!
This product came exactly as expected and is beautiful. Even though it is delicate glass, it is sturdy and was not broken upon arrival like the wine glasses I ordered at the same time. Definitely easier to clean while it's still wet inside from wine, I recommend not leaving wine in it for too long before cleaning. Hand washing is going to be the way to go here as well. Overall very satisfied with this gift.
A great all around product!
This decanter is just great!We just got it in the mail yesterday, and already used it with dinner last night. It is a solid and hefty piece, while not being overly heavy both my wife and I could one hand pour with a whole bottle of wine in it. The structure is great too as it's design gives a great shape for swirling and aeration, as well as a great thumb grip while pouring.Very Satisfied Customer!
Beautiful and practical
A beautiful way to aerate those red wines that need to breathe. Very sturdy and well made. The rubber top fits in snugly so you can save any wine you don't finish. Highly recommend!
Elegant and functional
Great elegant design, very pretty crystal. My previous decanter was too delicate and difficult to clean, but this one is much more practical while also being extremely beautiful.
It's "Wine" of a kind!
After searching for the perfect housewarming gift for a friend, I found this decanter at the recommendation of my roommate ( a wine lover and self-proclaimed sommelier). My friend is quite a fan of red wine so I thought this would really step her game up from the nightly [pinot] noir. My first assessment was the packaging which was very nice (tasteful) and very protective, oh, and did I mention it arrived IN A DAY!. The lifetime guarantee was a nice touch as well. The hardest part for me was sifting through the bountiful array of decanter options, but after a bit of research as well as reading some of the more thorough reviews, I decided on this one. The rubber stopper it came with seemed a little unnecessary to me but I can see how this might be useful for storage.Overall, I was very impressed with this decanter and happy with the purchase. I know my friend loves it too! I will definitely be checking out some other products Vintorio offers with the holiday season fast approaching and my big Italian family popping bottles like it's their job!
Great decanter, highly recommended!
This is a beautiful and well made decanter, sturdy but not heavy and easy to hold. The wide base works perfectly for full-bodied wines and decant the wine pretty fast. Itâ€™s easy to clean because of its simple and sleek design. As a bonus it comes with a stopper cover for protection and cleanliness. I highly recommend to anyone who loves wine!
Pretty, sturdy and great statement piece!
My wife and I decided to get this after we received the aerator as a gift (I highly recommend this product if you love wine). Since the holidays are right around the corner, we wanted to try something new and interesting to liven up our gatherings at home, so we decided on purchasing a glass decanter. We decided to stick to Vintorio since their aerator was a very well-made product, so we figured their decanter would be the same great quality as well. Long story short, my wife and I really love this product! The decanter definitely helped bring out the taste of the wines while adding a festive touch to the occasion. It will have a permanent fixture in our home.
My wife also had the following to say regarding the decanter:
"It's pretty, sturdy and makes a great statement piece!"
I like it!
Love it sitting on my dinner table when I have people over. Easy to clean. Seems thick enough that it won't break.
Beautiful design. Wine tastes so much better. The rubber lid keeps the wine fresh.
Great gift for the holidays!
This beautiful decanter comes in a very nice packaged boxâ€”perfect for gifting (hostess gift, wedding, holiday)! Great price point, especially with the 15% off coupon.

I'm quite happy with so far. It somehow manages to be light enough to pour from easily while the glass is still thick and feels solid enough to survive a fall if you've had one too many. Its shape makes your wine swirl around a lot as you're pouring it in or out so it gets plenty of aeration. I also appreciate the clarity of glass which lets you really the color of your wine.

My last decanter chipped at the top, so it was time to replace it. So glad that I found the Vintorio Citadel decanter (and with the holidays coming up! Lots of dinner parties!) It was thicker glass than I expected which actually pleasantly surprised me. Definitely not as fearful that this will chip or break with long-term use. It's also beautifully designed, and my friends were all impressed by the craftsmanship. As for usage, it did a great job aerating wine. The box that it came in was also sleek, and it felt like a nice gift to myself.
Sturdy, elegant looking decanter that gets the job done
I am blown away by this decanter. While looking for a wine decanter, I decided to give this a try because I am 110% satisfied with Vintorio's wine aerator that I am using. As expected, this product is very sturdy and beautifully designed which elevates my wine drinking occasions. More importantly, I love the fact that the top is big enough so that it gives wine a more room to breathe. I have recommended this to my friend who is a wine connoisseur and he is in serious love with this decanter as well. If you enjoy wine like me, you should give this a try as well. Totally a game changer with this value.

Attractive and well designed.
Itâ€™s a very nice piece, heavy, solid, sturdy. It looks great on display and even better while in use. Swirling and pouring are easy because of the design. Very comfortable to hold.
Heavy Duty Decanter!!
This is a heavy duty decanter! The glass is thicker than most Iâ€™ve seen. It feels durable and looks great. The benefit to having a flat top is that you can pour from any angle. Many decanters have an angled top which mean you can only poor from one direction. The rubber stopper for the top is heavy duty as well and makes keeping the decanter clean very easy.
Not bad at all
Pretty sure this isnâ€™t handblown but it is nice
