Benefits of Decanting and Aerating Red Wine
Two common ways to help a young wine breathe and open up include decanting in a glass vessel with a large amount of surface area or Aerating through a wine aerator to quickly expose the wine to air. Exposing a wine to air before drinking allows the tannins to react and soften out, making the wine more drinkable. Additionally air exposure will blow off much of the sulfite that is used to preserve the wine and release many more aromas than you would otherwise experience.
The products used in this video can are a Kassi Wine Aerator, and a Le Chateau Wine Decanter. Both options are very well built and nice to have around if you are into red wine!
