Traditional Dark Balsamic Vinegar from Modena Italy
The father to our White Balsamic Vinegar, this is as dark, thick and rich as it gets. As an A grade vinegar, this is the highest grade vinegar that is allowed to be imported by volume into the United States. No \"lengthening\" here, this is straight out of the barrel with no gimmicks like added sugars and starches like most other brands! This elixir is best enjoyed over ice-cream, a bowl of fresh strawberries or aged cheeses~ for just a few ideas! This is truly a culinary delight and every cook deserves a quality balsamic like this!
Our supplier began their artisan vinegar company in 1889. Located in the Modena area of Italy, surrounded by rural farmlands and a passion for the Earth’s bounty, the company continues under the watchful eye of the third generation. Prepared using ancient traditional procedures, the process begins with careful selection of the Trebbiano grapes. They are ideal for the high sugar content required for production. These grapes are pressed and the resulting juice called “must” is heated in copper cauldrons until the volume is reduced through evaporation to about 40% of the original weight. The liquid is then decanted into wooden barrels (chestnut, oak, juniper and cherry) and left to age and transform into vinegar. As time goes by, part of the liquid evaporates and part of the liquid is absorbed into the wood. The liquid is transferred into smaller barrels while the new “must” is added to “top off” the bigger barrel. And so continues the process.
This a true artisan quality product from centuries old recipes using no added sugars or starches. The vinegar is aged in small barrels under the traditional methods with strict controls. It reaches a perfect balance of aroma and flavor when fully mature. Dark as night with a heavenly thick consistency and a sweet, pungent taste that delights all the senses.
