A beverage utensil used to aerate and filter liquids, such as wine as it is poured into a decanter. There are a variety of different types available that are made with a wide mouth so the pouring and aerating is easier and more effective as the wine swirls and aerates when it is poured through the funnel. A screen insert is also often included with the funnel that is used to filter out sediment and any reside, such as cork, contained in the wine. Decanting is a procedure that improves the flavor and aroma of the wine as well as the clarity and color.
