The wide base exposes the wine to more surface area and oxygen, allowing the wine to open up to its full potential, thus bringing out the very best qualities of the nose and flavor.

The classic shape of this decanter is exactly what I wanted. I also wanted the decanter to have a deep punt, and although the picture doesn't show it too well, this decanter has a nice deep punt (the indentation at the bottom of the decanter) - which makes it much easier to hold and pour with one hand. I also like the laser cut top edge, which makes for drip-free pouring from the decanter.
