European Oak

European Oak  (Quercus sessilis / Q. petraea)

European oak belongs to the same Q. sessilis species, so it is also cut using the split method. However, it comes from the forests of Mount Semenic, located on the Banat Mountains in Romania. The oaks from this area provide an aromatic complexity similar to that of the French oak, but slightly more intense towards notes of clove, almond, coconut and vanilla, which is due to the significant contribution of furfurals, eugenol and lactones to the wine over time.
