The Ravenscroft Crystal Ultra Magnum Decanter is a practical wine decanter that is able to hold a magnum of wine or alternatively, three regular sized bottles. It is the largest of the Ravenscroft decanters and suitable for occasions where a decanter for more than a small intimate group is required. In addition to its size, it also features a low neck and a beveled opening.

It also has a wide bottom that is well weighted so that aeration of a large volume of wine is possible while sediment can comfortably rest on the bottom. The shape is pleasing and complemented by the use of quality lead free crystal, resulting in an attractive piece of glassware to grace a dinner table.

Like other quality wine decanters, the Ravenscroft decanter makes an excellent gift for anyone who enjoys entertaining while enjoying quality wine. Even though its size is larger than a regular decanter, customers appreciated the value and quality of the wine decanter and found it to be a welcome addition to their dinner tables.
