Inside Text: From the Vine... A corkscrew opens a wine bottle, but air opens up a wine, awakening its aromas and softening the hardness of the tannins. The easiest way to allow a wine to breathe is to pour the whole bottle out into a decanter. Breathing time will do most wines (especially a young red wine) a world of good. Swirling wine once it's in your glass helps aerate, too.
