Small, French wooden barrels (225-250 liters). Because of the higher ratio of surface area to wine, barriques “soften” the tannins in wine faster than Botti Grandi (large barrels of 500-700 liters). If the barriques are new (as opposed to used) and if they are “toasted” or burned inside, they add more wood flavor.
