The use of oak barrels for wine ageing is a widespread technique due to the ideal physical and structural properties of oak wood. The oak barrel is an active, interactive container that releases aromatic compounds and tannin when wet while allowing oxygen to penetrate and largely determines the characteristics of produced wine. The level of release of characteristics compounds to the enclosed wine decreases for repeated wine fillings and after a number of refills the barrel must be replaced.
