In SA OH 272:1 the Mechabeir writes that one shouldn't use wine left out 
for kiddush (or any type of mitzvah adds the Aruch HaShulchan). The 
problem isn't gi'loi'im but the pasuk in Malachi 1:8 which teaches us 
not to use Grade B products for mitzvot.  The assumption is that wine 
left out goes bad (or gets worse) and therefore it can't be used for 

My question is what does one do if you thinking allowing wine to breath 
for hours improves the taste? That's been my experience for years. If I 
open a bottle Friday evening, the wine definitely tastes better Saturday
