A method of ageing which aims to give the wine certain aromas of evolution (dried fruit, bitter orange, coffee, rancio, etc.) by exposing it to the air; it is then matured either in barrels, demi-muids or unoaked casks, sometimes stored in the open air, or in barrels exposed to the sun and to temperature variations.
