Classic Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar
A blend of vinegars aged 12-18 years using the classic Solera method. Use as a base for salad dressing or put a Classic spin on your favorite marinade.
True balsamic vinegar is made from a reduction of pressed Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes. The resulting thick syrup, called mosto cotto in Italian, is subsequently aged for a minimum of 12 years in a battery of seven barrels of successively smaller sizes. The casks are made of different woods like chestnut, acacia, cherry, oak, mulberry, ash, and, in the past, juniper. True balsamic vinegar is rich, glossy, deep brown in color and has a complex flavor that balances the natural sweet and sour elements of the cooked grape juice with hints of wood from the casks.
I was just in Rome … and bought some special balsamic right in Campo Fiori. VERY special Italian balsamic. Expensive! $60. It came in the most beautiful box I’ve ever seen. Let me tell you… taste was NOTHING compared to the taste of OMG Balsamic! OMG BALSAMIC… IS BETTER THAN THE BEST IN ROME!!! Seriously. Can’t live without it.
this is the absolute best balsamic vinegar you will ever taste. Really.
The best vinegar. I like Caprese salads. Vinegar is wonderful. Makes my day!
So happy to get this great birthday gift! So delectable!
This has got to be the best balsamic vinegar I have ever had!! It's not too watery and not too thick. It has the perfect blend sweet and tart. I absolutely love this!!!!
