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
