The carafe was delivered very fast, well packed and secured, I think it would survive even an earthquake.
In the picture it looks smaller and more fragile - well, it's of proper size, the glass is thick enough so you won't be worried of braking it at any time. The carafe is stable and pouring wine is very comfortable, with few or none drops going down it's neck.
The oak stopper is way nicer than expected, it fits the carafe perfectly and makes it look incredibly nice.
Overall - wine poured from the carafe tastes amazingly, and because of the way it looks it serves well as a decorous element.
