Garbellotto Oak Casks

The Prestige of Garbellotto Casks

Choice Oak:

Garbellotto casks and barrels are produced from an oak mix of Quercus Robur-Pedunculata and Quercus Petrea-Sessilis species of wood. Together, this mix creates the strength Garbellotto casks are known for.

Traditional Production:

Garbellotto casks and barrels have been made in the same traditional method over the past 245 years. By keeping the technique of using direct fire to shape the staves, Garbellotto casks keep the full depth of their staves throughout the shaping process. Only after assembly does the toasting process begin as indicated by the customer.

In the final stages of production, the staves are softly planed and given a light coat of breathable, anti-mold paint to preserve and protect the cask from bacteria and outside elements.

Unique Innovation:

The double concaved arching heads, symbolic of Garbellotto's products, keep the cask strong under internal pressures and eliminate the use of unsightly transversal wooden bars at the head.

The prestige, tradition and craftsmanship that goes into each cask and barrel leaving Garbellotto makes any cellar stand out in both beauty and taste.

The growth of wood, like grapes and all natural products, depends on micro climatic variables such as the degree of humidity in the area, the composition of the earth as well as the exposure of the hill or plain. The selection criteria generally used are based only on the region and the experience of the producer. It cannot be said that wood originating from a specific region has a higher level of polyphenols than others grown in other regions, since the origins don’t make the difference, whereas the single stave does. If we think about the difference between the grapes produced in one vineyard and others produced at a distance of 5 km we can well understand just how much difference exists inside a forest where the distances reach 100km and over. The ordinary methods of analysis are ineffective as only samples of a few cm of wood are assessed in laboratories and are thus representative only of themselves.

With NIR (Near Infra-Red) technology every stave is controlled under infra-red light and its aromatic and structural features are analyzed online in order to have all the information as if it were a radiography.

With NIR we have been able to identify 4 commercial categories:

Structure: it identifies the structural feature, is wood characterized by high contents of tannin and ellagitannins. The wine acquires structure and body, the color settles.

Sweet: it identifies the sweet feature, is wood characterized by high contents of vanillin and furfural. The wine acquires hints of sweet aroma.

Spice: it identifies the spice feature, is wood characterized by high contents of lactone and eugenol. The wine acquires hints of spice.

Equilibrium: it identifies that there is no dominant character. The wine takes on a flavor which is a mixture of the ones mentioned above and the wood feels well-balanced. We have also been able to identify the markerfor the Erbacea feature, bitterness which if present in a large quantity is not eliminated even after many years of aging. This type of wood is therefore discarded and destined for other uses

 

DTS® - Digital Toasting System

custom image

 

The toasting is the process that enhances the flavors of the wood catalyzing those already present in the same and positively evolving them. Until now this process was realized on a brazier fed with pieces of oak where it was placed the barrel or cask. It is clear that the wood evolves these aromas according to toasting temperatures, which must be on the range of 170/180/200 degrees centigrade depending on whether you seek, more or less aromas of vanilla, licorice, chocolate, or tobacco smoke.

If the temperature and internal exposure of the staves is not homogeneous and controlled, the result are casks or barrels with aromas undefined. The staves taking less heat will develop bitter and negative aromas, the staves that take too much exposure can produce negative aromas of graphite. For this reason we created and patented the DTS® digital toasting, where a tablet, thanks to sensors, can handle the fire levels so that it is constant over the entire surface of the wood.
