Italian Concrete

Nico Velo Concrete Wine Tanks

NICO VELO is a well-established and prestigious Italian manufacturer of reinforced concrete tanks for wine fermentation and aging, with a full range of shapes and sizes to satisfy every need in the winemaking sector.

The company is situated at the foothills of the Italian Dolomites where Manu spent several summertime vacations. These mountains have always fascinated him for their majestic splendor.  
Nico Velo uses pristine materials such as sand and gravel from the riverbed of the Brenta river and has been making concrete tanks for 70 years proving the quality worldwide. Their concrete tanks are elegant and refined in form, combining technical and aesthetic requirements. 

"What is special about these tanks from Nico Velo?"

The materials chosen to make a tank suitable for winemaking are indeed important, and Nico Velo has its own proprietary formula. 

Additionally, Nico Velo patented many years ago the use of thermoregulating pipes embedded in the tank's walls and floor.
