'Aged in barrel', this is the label given to wines that have been aged in a wooden barrel for at least 6 months. Aging in such barrels gives the wine a harmonious fullness, micro-oxidation and refinement. It acquires greater archiving potential.
Fans of higher tannins and notes of vanilla or caramel can be guided by the designation 'Barrique'. Wines that have been aged for at least 3 months in a 225 litre barrique cask that has not been used for wine production for more than 36 months may be labelled as such. In France, Italy or Spain, you will only find the appellation on the bottle without the 'Barrigue' (they have their own regulations regarding wine production technology and the ageing of wine in barrel, especially red wine, is taken for granted and is not indicated on the label).
