RIEDEL Decanter Black Tie Smile
With its soft curves, the Smile decanter’s sultry form makes this decanter a superb addition to any collection. The decanter’s inverted heart-shaped base makes it effortless to hold in the palm of the hand and easy to pour. This bold decanter is mouthblown and formed by hand, making each a unique work of art.
Like the rest of the Black Tie collection, Smile 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.
This decanter is designed for a single bottle of wine.
This pack contains a single piece.
This product is handmade. Please handwash only.

There are two reasons why we decant wines:
- Decant an older wine to separate it from its sediment.
- Decant a younger wine to increase aeration, revealing more complexity, and opening up aromas and flavors.
On the palate, decanted wine expresses higher levels of fruit in red wines and tends to integrate and smooth out tannins.
We offer a wide range of elegant machine-blown and extravagant hand-made decanters to honor good wines with the treatment they deserve.
Every hand-made product is crafted by highly talented master glass blowers, using glass making techniques which date back more than 2000 years.
All decanters are made from crystal glass suitable for every lifestyle and available at every price range.
Every single decanter is a must-have for wine lovers.
