For years the Amadeo, Mamba and Cornetto decanters have been a permanent and successful part of the Riedel decanter collections. In 2017, Riedel is presenting a new edition of these three decanters, which will complement the new Fatto a Mano glass series with its coloured stems.
All three decanters have undergone a kind of metamorphosis. In the Fatto a Mano Edition, they have optical blown glass and a black-white-black ornamental line that enhances their dynamic designs.
The art of optically blown glass originated in Venice, the cradle of the most superior glassblowing techniques. Nowadays there are not many glass blowers who are proficient in this method. During his training in Murano, Maximilian Riedel was so fascinated by this technique, that he now uses it for special pieces in his collections.
Riedel recommends Amadeo and Cornetto for more mature wines and for champagne. Mamba is perfect for young, wild wines that benefit from this decanter’s dual decanting function.
These crystal glass decanters are handcrafted and mouth blown in Kufstein. Each decanter is a unique piece and an absolute must-have for connoisseurs.
