Our Denissimo is made from Trebbiano grape must which is naturally caramelized and cooked down to an even greater extent, and aged for EVEN longer in the traditional “Batteria” of Modena. Our exclusive “Denissimo” contains less than 1% barrel aged Italian red wine vinegar for pro-biotic effect, and slowly ages in five different casks comprised of mulberry, ash, oak, juniper, and cherry wood. This exquisite and exceedingly rare 1.36 density balsamic is extremely complex boasting flavor notes of cherry wood, dried fruits, raisins, figs, along with hints of dark chocolate and malt. 4% acidity
Tiny, haphazard streets wind past brightly-colored yellow, orange, and pink buildings, the spire of the Torre Ghirlandina peering above their walls over your head. The tradition of Balsamic Vinegar here in Modena, Italy is sacred and the city’s pride in their craft is evidenced everywhere. In the archives of Modena, on public view, is a wine list from a secret Ducal cellar dated 1747 and balsamic vinegar is listed alongside the wine. There are writings from 1508, recalling balsamic vinegar and talking about it in the court of the Duke of Modena, who was Lucrezia Borgia’s husband. The first Balsamic Vinegar was documented almost a thousand years ago in 1046, here in Modena, and that process, created all those years ago and demarcated by the essential word “tradizionale” or “traditional”, is the same process we use for ours.
