When I asked my friend, chef, and fellow oenophile Kevin about his thoughts about wine aerators in general, he responded, “You need to give a wine all the opportunity to be at its best”. I totally agree with this and was motivated to take a closer look at the TRIbello wine aerator.
It is well known that after a bottle of wine is opened, it needs to awaken from its restful state and it does this by being exposed to oxygen. A common approach is to transfer the wine to a decanter and give it some time for oxygen to wake it right up. The downside of this technique is that it takes a while so you have to plan in advance.
A faster and equally efficient approach is to place an aerator into the bottle where the cork used to be and pour the wine through it. The creator is designed to incorporate just the right amount of oxygen into the wine as it goes through it and you are ready to enjoy it at its finest immediately. This approach is especially best when you are planning on only having a single glass.
The net effect of aeration is to soften the tannins and release its scent making it the best it can be at your demand.
Now that we have reviewed the concept of wine aeration in general, let’s take a close look at the TRIbella Wine aerator.
The TRIbella is a very sturdy device incorporating three steel tubes and a rubber stopper that have been configured to do an excellent job of aeration. It is easy to use and does a great job. It is easy to clean and comes with a convent travel case so it is perfect for people on the go.
