Conical a large scale tank for high yield harvests
Sonoma by SAS designs and manufactures one-of-a-kind concrete tanks. Inspired by Roman amphoras, the tank imparts beneficial properties to the wine, making this tank a safe bet for wine producers.
The great advantage of the Conical tank’s design is that it allows the lees to move.
Among their product range, the Conical tank is particularly effective for red wines since the liquid soaks the cap, which helps to break it down and intensifies the maceration. Conical, available in four sizes and styles (31, 36, 38 or 40 hectolitres), uses a cone-shaped design that is perfect for performing delestage as when the liquid soaks the cap, it helps to break it down, while intensifying the maceration and, as a result, facilitates the extraction of the colour and the phenolic compounds. By having no edges, the design of the Conical model allows the lees to move with the wine, protecting it from oxidation.
SAS offers the option to customise the tank according to the desired aesthetics.
Double layer structure makes it the best investment
Sonoma by SAS uses a unique double-layer system that ensures the tank has greater resistance and durability, allowing the company to offer a 10-year guarantee against cracks and fissures with all its concrete tanks.
Available in different sizes and styles, Conical comes in 4 models: 31, 36, 38 or 40 hectolitres.
