Stravecchio - balsamic vinegar Gran Riserva di Famiglia Leonardi
Truly exceptional balsamic vinegar. A very very special product
Leonardi, excellence since 1871
«In order to produce a truly sublime Balsamic vinegar, you need passion, devotion and respect for the traditions which envelope this black gold with a veil of mystery. Leonardi has taken this approach to making its vinegar for nearly four generations.
The rules which control the production of Balsamic vinegar dictate that wooden barrels are used for every stage: acidification, maturation and aging. 2000 barrels, amongst them barrels made of chestnut, cherry, ash, and juniper, wait patiently in 19th century lofts and barns, waiting to reach the moment when their contents are ready for you to taste. Each barrel gives its own flavour and aroma to the vinegar it holds, resulting in a unique product, richly perfumed, harmonious, and perfectly balanced.
