Aging

After vinification, the wine experiences the maturation phase and then the aging phase. These processes can take place both in stainless steel tanks and in wooden barrels of variuos sizes.

For wines not intended to be aged, stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature are used.

For those wines destined to be aged, the aging procedure takes place in wooden barrels. The wood enables an evolution of the wine that softens the tannins, improves of the body structure and develops scent of tertiary sector, in the most structured and complex wines.

Small containers (225 liter barriques) or medium ones (500 liter tonneaux), can be used for that pourpose, here the wine is largely in contact with the wood surfice of the barril, absorbing its aromas and flavors. The size, the type of wood, the number of times the tanks have been used, ensures that each cask gives the wine different tastes, flavors and aromas and guides its evolution based on the type the wine company intends to obtain. In Fattoria Pogni, French and American oak barriques and tonneaux are used according to the type of wine.
