The Riedel Cornetto Single Crystal Decanter is a stylish and elegant piece of art which is made to resemble the graceful neck of a swan. It is also of course, a wine decanter made by Austrian glass blowers for Riedel who have hand sculpted full-lead crystal into a swan’s neck, managing to create an artistic and functional piece. As a decanter it is easy to hold and easy to pour from. As a creative piece of glass work, it is even easier to appreciate.
The mouth of the decanter has been cut on an angle so as to compliment the elegant arch of the swan’s neck. You are able to savoir your wine while at the same time savoring the beauty of the decanter. For brilliance and clarity, the decanter has been crafted from full-lead crystal.

Customers that have left feedback for the Riedel Cornetto Decanter have given it an outstanding rating. While all ratings were favorable, a couple of concerns were raised. These were that sometimes the decanter can drip and it can also take a while to dry out inside, after rinsing. I’d recommend a decanter drying stand to help accelerate drying.
