small wooden barrel

Colloquial term (also small barrel, small wood, small oak barrel, small oak wood barrel) without meaning in wine law for a barrique barrel with a volume of 225 litres, although this can also include up to about 350 litres. However, the term is not unambiguous, because it does not necessarily have to be a barrique barrel. Traditional wooden barrels of a larger format and different sizes are colloquially referred to as large wooden barrels. See also barrel and barrel types.
