The proper use of Oak Alternatives improves wine aroma and taste in a way that makes it pleasing to the international and new consumer market, whilst reducing cost and time compared to barrel ageing.

For centuries, winemakers have utilized oak barrels for making wine. Today, oak barrels are still considered the optimal treatment for high quality wines, however using them imposes some major challenges for winemakers. For this reason, alternative methods and tools have been developed which give winemakers greater control and flexibility with oak ageing.

There are many reasons to consider oak alternatives:
Cost is the most common reason for using barrel alternatives. Barrel alternatives significantly reduce oak investment, labor and timing.
Storage space is considerably reduced when using tanks and oak alternatives to simulate oak ageing instead of barrels.
Quality is more consistent and easier to check.
• Risk of microbiological contamination is reduced.
Ease of Use: large volumes can be treated in tank, minimizing wine transfers and handling.

    Incanto NC products are completely soluble formulations containing tannins mainly extracted from toasted oak and yeast polysaccharides. They mimic the effect of oak dust in fermentation while offering advantages such as an absence of solids that could damage mechanical parts of winery equipment, dosages 10 times smaller than typical oak powder, zero loss of colour by solid absorption and reduced waste.
