Venturi

Decanting spout named after the Italian physicist Giovanni B. Venturi (1746-1822), who invented this principle. The approximately ten-centimeter long pipe is made of plastic and stainless steel and has a tight-fitting rubber stopper. An hourglass-like constriction increases the flow rate and creates a vacuum that draws air into the tube. A sieve with different sized holes splits the wine and aerates it additionally. The remaining wine in the bottle does not come with the supplied oxygen in contact. This principle replaces according to the manufacturer a decanter with hours decanting, After similar principle functioning brand systems are Decantus and Versovino,
