big wooden barrel

Designation (also "big wood") for a wooden wine barrel. However, it has no meaning in terms of wine law and also gives no indication of a specific volume. This is to say that this is not a "small keg" Barrique (225 l), but just a "larger volume" such as half-piece (600 l), piece (1,200 l) double piece (2,400 l) or even larger. In addition, it is indirectly expressed that the wine, although with the advantage of maturity development in wooden barrels, but without wooden music was expanded. Large wooden barrels are experiencing a renaissance again, both for the fermentation, as well as for the expansion. These are becoming increasingly common (especially up to around 2,400 l) toasting subjected.
