The Aromas of Excellence Balsamic Vinegar
Balsamic vinegar offers a sweet, complex, and slightly sugary flavor with balanced acidity. It provides a rich and nuanced range of flavors, including notes of ripe fruits such as plum, fig, and cherry. You can also detect hints of caramel or wood. These characteristics make it a highly appreciated ingredient for vinaigrettes, marinades, reductions, and even desserts.
The Making of Excellence Balsamic Vinegar
Balsamic vinegar is crafted from partially fermented grape must, to which wine vinegar is added, and then undergoes a maturation process. This maturation process, lasting a minimum of 60 days from the start of raw material processing, involves a meticulous blending of these components in the right proportions.
At the end of this period, the product undergoes analytical and organoleptic evaluation by a group of technical experts and tasters. This crucial step determines whether the product can be certified as Balsamic Vinegar. After 60 days of maturation in wooden tanks, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena can also be further aged. This vinegar is aged for 6 years in oak barrels and then bottled for commercial sale.
