Questions and answer
I would like to produce “Balsamico”, how much time will I need to dedicate to it in a year?

How many barrels are needed?
Series are generally formed of between 5 and 12 barrels, according to the customers needs: Alternatively you may start with less barrels (preferably the smaller ones) and add one more each year.
How important is the quality of the barrel?
It is fundamental, for the perfect seal of the barrel, for the transfer of aromas. So the better the barrels, lesser will be the problems during the life of the balsamico. The barrels will eventually be replaced only after several generations.
What are the most used woods?
Slavonian oak, Chestnut, Ash, Acacia, Cherry, Mulberry (Pear and Juniper when available) that must be cured a minimum 4-8 years in natural weather conditions.
Juniper wood?
(In Italy protected species)
Always alert and constantly looking around the world for "good quality"  juniper wood for the production of barrels. We can now see: the market offers a  NO good quality wood for perfumes, scents and fiber (hints of resin), so the lack of quality in the raw material coupled with long working experience and company reliability forbid us to build barrels we consider as "defective".
