Slovenian Oak Open Top Fermentors

Introducing our new line of Barrels, Oval & Round Casks, anks and Fermentors constructed of Slovenian Oak.

Some of the reasons to employ the use of Slovenian Oak in your red wine program are as follows.

  • Barrels and Casks made from Slovenian used extensively by the great Chianti wineries in Tuscany.
  • Slovenian oak intensity is somewhere between French and American Oak.

Some Comments from Italian Winemakers: 

Proprietor Michael Count Goëss-Enzenberg at Tenuta Manicor said: “The advantage we see in our Slovenian oak Casks is, besides the harmony with our wines, that it is very subtle on our fruit, and on the aromas and the minerality our wines show. It just respects the character of our wines more.”

Optimizing the use of oak for micro-oxygenation properties rather than oak characters continues to be important where fruit, rather than ‘boisée’ characters are sought. Giuseppe. Mazzocolin of Felsina, said “We place great importance on employing barrels that have been used in preceding years, since the wine that has been in them has lent them certain characteristics that reflect the Felsina terroir.
