Wine aficionados know that decanted wine tastes better. In the simplest terms, decanting is the process of transferring wine out of its bottle and into a different vessel before serving. Many sommeliers and wine lovers alike swear by decanting as the final step in perfecting the taste of wine before consumption. The act of transferring wine, which is a living, breathing entity constantly changing and shifting, into a jug or carafe before drinking aerates the liquid, opening up the flavors. Slow pouring also separates the sediment out of an old wine, which can alleviate bitterness.
