With its long graceful neck, this decanter is ideal for invigorating young wines. By shaking the wine until a foam cap develops, it achieves the maximum effect of oxygen on young tannins.
Like the rest of the Black Tie collection, Face to Face is dressed up with a black tuxedo stripe that extends gracefully from top to bottom. This is achieved by introducing a rod of black crystal into the molten glass before the decanter has been formed.
Designed to hold a single bottle of wine. This product is handmade. Please handwash only.
Caution - the indented design feature of this decanter must not be used as a handle. Do not insert your hand or any item into the indented area. The soaring Face to Face decanter features two concave profiles facing one another in the interior of the vessel. These are the profiles of the 11th generation RIEDELs, Laetizia and Maximilian, and this innovative element doubles as both a bold design and as paddles.
When developing a glass, RIEDEL's design ideas are not born on a drawing board, but shaped by trial and error with the help and support of the world's greatest palates. A person interested in wine is led by color, bouquet and taste, but often the glass is not considered as an instrument to convey the wine's message. Over the years, RIEDEL has acquired some interesting scientific explanations as to why the shape of a glass influences the bouquet and taste of alcoholic beverages. The first discovery was made while enjoying wine. The same wine displayed completely differently characteristics when served in a variety of glasses. The differences were so great that experienced connoisseurs were made to believe that they were tasting different wines. The grape variety is the key factor in determining the relationship between fruit, acidity, tannin and alcohol. As the next step, RIEDEL was able to create shapes in which the wine, vinified from specific grape varieties, seemed to improve. We started to recognize the complex role that size and shape play in conveying the message of a fine wine.
