Clayver is a ceramic container with 250, 350 and 400 liter capacity. The weight of the three models is respectively 100, 125 and 150 kilo. The shape can be spherical or oblong to limit the weight and favor the convective motions that appear naturally in the fermentation and aging phase on the fine lees. The spherical shape allows also an easier handling of the container in its movements and makes cleaning easier.

The container is made of gres obtained starting from a mix of raw material selected with the precise aim of making it suitable for containment and aging of wine. A small residual porosity allows a light exchange of gas with the external environment. This type of material guarantees an excellent chemical inertia and the absence of transfer of metallic ions to wine. Despite gres being particularly hard and resistant it is still a material that is sensitive to impact. A certain care is necessary therefore in its handling.
