Aged up to 18 years in oak barrels in the traditional Modena style, our finest Balsamic Vinegar from Modena, Italy is diverse, thick and potent enough to be dripped onto a dish as a condiment and balanced enough to pair with our olive oils for a salad dressing. Sweet and strong, it is delicious drizzled on fruit or ice cream.
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.
