Low-Conicity Truncated Tanks
These truncated concrete tanks are defined by their rate of conicity between 7% and 11%. These vessels possess the excellent thermal inertia characteristics of all concrete tanks, allowing for a slow and controlled ferment. The inspiration for the style of tank comes from traditional oak fermenters, but adapted and updated in their form to accommodate the needs of fermentation in concrete.
Within this range, Nomblot has incorporated tanks that were built to the specifications of the reputed Screaming Eagle, Dana, and Harlan Estates in Napa Valley.
The low-conicity truncated tanks are particularly suited for the production and fermentation of red wines. As with all Nomblot tanks, they can be fitted with cooling and heating exchangers to offer a precise temperature control of the wines inside.
