I got this because I thought that it looked very elegant and classy. My mother and I like to have a drink on a rear occasion so I mainly got this for when we have guest over but it has been nice to use for us as well. This has a curve to the neck of it that makes it easy to hold and sprouts outwards towards the top. You can get one here http://www.amztk.com/750ml This was able to hold a whole bottom of wine that we had. The bottom part of it holds that larger portion of it. It is light while you hold it. It looked great on the table. I was able to hold this steady and pour our glasses with this. The wine flowed out smoothly. This can be used at gatherings like weddings, formal settings and more. Overall, this is a great looking decanter and I would recommend it. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
