This traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena is at least 25 years old.
It is not an ordinary vinegar as the word vinegar may suggest but a true mysterious Italian elixir. Traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena is made with trebbiano grapes must. This must is first boiled in an open vat over a fire. The juice is then placed in high quality wooden barrels (oak, chestnut, then cherrywood, ash and mulberry barrels) for at least 25 years and up to 80 years. It undergoes a long oxidation and fermentation process. This long aging process lets it achieve a unique and exceptionnal balance of fragrances and flavors.
Tasting : bright dark brown colour. Fluid and syrupy consistency. Complex fragrances with a noticeable harmony of sweet and sour notes.
