This hand blown, crystal glass decanter is shaped like a lyre and pours like a dream. Wine is simply decanted into the vessel’s wider opening and poured into the glass through its slender mouth. Effortless and pleasurable to use, the Amadeo decanter is a reminder that functional objects can be works of art.
The Amadeo Black Tie is a worthy heir to the line – debonair as a tuxedo with the same elegance and ease of use as its predecessors. The Amadeo Black Tie Decanter shares the same graceful lyre form as the other decanters in the line, but adds a distinctive difference. Its flawless clear crystal glass body is articulated with a single slender black tuxedo stripe that lovingly follows the contours of its stylized U-shaped silhouette. A prime example of streamlined chic, this new decanter is a marvelous companion to Riedel’s Sommeliers Black Tie glasses, with their black stems and clear bases for red wine and clear stems and black bases for white.
