Sensory Effects

Our fire-toasted segments are respectful of the fruit, creating a slow and progressive wood extraction similar to Barrels. Usage widens the aromatic profile of the wine to contribute notes of vanilla, spiciness, toasted and roasted characters according to wood quality. There is often an increasing feeling of sweetness and increased volume and structure of mouth feel. VINEA delvers length, roundness, elegance.
