Designation (also "large wood") for a wine barrel made of wood. However, it has no legal meaning and does not indicate a specific volume. It is intended to express that the barrel is not a "small barrel", i.e. barrique (225 l), but a "larger volume", such as a half-barrel (600 l), a piece (1,200 l), a double barrel (2,400 l) or even larger. In addition, this indirectly expresses the fact that the wine was matured in wooden barrels with the advantage of ageing, but without a wood note. Large wooden barrels are experiencing a renaissance again, both for fermentation and ageing. These are also (especially up to about 2,400 l) increasingly subjected to toasting.
