We have selected this species, the robinia pseudoacacia, from the forests of Romania. Out of all our exotic woods, this one provides the least oxidative environment for wine. In addition, it is characterized by having a low extractable tannin content, making it ideal for long-term aging. This tree, among its main characteristics, presents a high aromatic aldehyde content, particularly vanilla and syringaldehyde, accompanied by a gradual increase of spices over time.
This species, known in the botanical world as Prunus avium, is characterized by its high concentration of flavonoids and low content of hydrolysable tannins. Therefore, drying times are shorter. This Romanian wood has a low antioxidant potential and a high concentration of condensed tannins, which combined with light toastings, is ideal for short-term aging. Its aromatic compounds provide spicier and fresher notes.
