Gallo tannins composed of hydrolysable ellagitannins from toasted American oak and purified water. No additives.
The primary use is to add structure and mouthfeel to red and white wines. These tannins are partially polymerized, softening existing tannins in the wine. AOT will recreate some of the characteristics of extended barrel storage, but in much less time.
- Increased mouthfeel
