Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena – Obtained from the slow cooking on direct fire of musts of Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes, aged in little barriques of different woods (oak, cherry, juniper, chestnut, ash, acacia, mulberry) for minimum 12 years. This nectar has a balanced sweet-and-sour taste which will sublime any sweet or savoury dish: from starters, first courses, meat, to cheese and desserts. It is as well a great digestif if enjoyed pure off a spoon at the end of the meal.
