The European oak corresponds to the same species of Q. sessilis, for which reason it is also worked by cutting by creasing method. However, it comes from the forests of Mount Semenic, located in the Banat Mountains in Romania.

The oak from this area contributes an aromatic complexity similar to that of French oak, but slightly more intense towards the notes of cloves, almonds, coconut and vanilla, which are explained by a significant contribution to the wine of furfurals, eugenol and lactones over time.
