Italian glass wine aerator/pourer

commissaris | Sep 21, 200710:00 AM     19

While in Tuscany this past week, we were in a restaurant in Montalcino where the waiter had a neat wine pourer/aerator. It attached directly to the wine bottle, looked like a glass globe, and he poured the wine into the globe, then tipped it into our glasses. I was able to find a similar item in a wine store in Castelina in Chianti, but the globe is shaped like a bunch of grapes.

I've been seaching on line valiantly to try to find another one or two to buy. I'm not evaluating the effectiveness, but simply the 'funness' of using this.

Does anyone have a source or suggestion for buying these? I've tried multiple seaches under "wine aerators" "wine decanting" "wine funnels" (although this really isn't a funnel) and about any other term I could think of.

Thanks for any and all help!
