When the first traces become visible, pouring is stopped. Especially for large format bottles ( Jeroboam with 3 liters and larger), such a device can be very helpful even for the purpose of serving. These devices are available in countless variations. Other decanting aids or devices are Decantus. Venturi. Versovino and wine cradle,
