Balsamico di Modena

superior balsamic vinegar from Italy

Authentic balsamic vinegar is a nectar. Its origins are buried so far in the history of Italy that no one knows for certain when it was first made, only that it dates back to the Renaissance period.

An authentic balsamic can only be made in the towns and surrounding regions of Modena and Emilia, both of which are in the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. A group of experts called a consortium oversees all the production of balsamico , and all balsamic produced must meet the very strict quality standards put forth by the consortium. True balsamico is produced by individual families, most of which have been making balsamic for multiple generations.

Made using 80% Trebbiano and 20% Lambrusco grape juices, our balsamico is cooked until caramelized. Then each batch is aged in barrels of various woods, like cherry, mulberry, acacia, chestnut and juniper, for a total of eight years.

100 ml or 3.38 fl. oz.
