Here is another example – just one set of tanks at Occhipinti in Sicily. Again I think its the uniformity and repetition that appeals. That and knowing that held in each one are liquid joy waiting for the right moment to be released. But the repetition is broken by the red pipes adding, like ladders and mops and buckets, wine tasting equipment and other detritus a real sense of a working environment. They might not have the mystic of an oak barrel but they are of equal importance.
