Up in the attic of an old vinegar house in Modena referred to as Acetaia Reale, the pure grape must slowly turns into a miraculously fragrant essence that is a true balm for the palate as it is exposed to both, the sultry summer heat and icy winter cold. A century-long tradition requires Balsamic Vinegar to be produced in small wooden barrels to ensure quality and superiority.
¬†In the attic of this 19th century farmhouse lay 1600 precious wood barrels made of oak, chestnut, ash, locust tree, mulberry and juniper. Each of them lends its very special taste and aroma to the unique and inimitable Balsamic Vinegar of Modena during aging.
This 20-year aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is made according to age-old methods with no additives, sweeteners, or preservatives that often mar the flavor of other so-called Balsamic Vinegars. It is incredibly thick and sweet that never stops amazing us with its intense, powerful flavor. Excellent on cooked vegetables, soup, pasta, risotto, and fresh strawberries. This vinegar is wood gift-boxed and comes with two hand-blown glass serving utensils.
