On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me:
A Partridge in a Pear Tree brought me a TRIbella Wine Aerator
The holiday season is in full swing—Christmas music plays in
stores and decorations dot the city—and that means shopping.
It can be a dreaded task for some, but if you’ve got wine
lovers in your midst, this article shares some great gift ideas for
them—whether you’re shopping for a boss, brother-in-law, or
your Secret Santa. The gift suggestions are all things I personally
use, recommend, and give as gifts. Most White wine is served too chilled and the extra bit of warmth allows the true aromas and flavors to become more distinguishable.
I use this aerator regularly, with whites and reds. It simply makes for a better glass of wine.

We hear it all the time: “Let the wine breath.” A wonderful
way to make this happen is with a wine aerator, a device that
immediately “treats” a wine by infusing it with oxygen. Decanting—
gradually pouring the entire contents of a bottle of wine into a
vessel, allowing oxygen to have its effect—accomplishes this but not as
effectively or quickly. This is the point where the wine aerator comes in.
This exciting new TRIbella aerator design features a finely dimpled rubber
material on its exterior and the stealth-like device, sleek and petite, is a
welcome addition to the majority of aeration devices, which tend to be larger and
just plain clunky. It comes in a case you might expect to find in one of Q’s latest gadgets
for James Bond.
Both easy to use and clean, the TRIbella aerator performs three basic and essential
functions. First, it settles a wine’s tannins, the tactile sensations we feel in our mouth
from grape skins, stems and seeds. Second, it allows the wine to be infused with oxygen,
revealing its aromas and taste sensations. In a glass, if wine is not aerated or decanted
properly, the wine takes much longer to present correctly. Third, in the case of white
wine, this aerator helps warm the wine just slightly before it hits your glass. Most white wine is served too chilled and the extra bit of warmth allows the true aromas and flavors to become more distinguishable.I use this aerator regularly, with whites and reds. It simply
makes for a better glass of wine.
