100ml | Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP Extravecchio | Aged Minimum of 25 years
Traditional balsamic, the most prized of vinegars, has two grades: Those aged a minimum of twelve years, and those aged more than 25 years, which is then called extravecchio or "very old." The Balsamico Tradizionale is bottled under strict controls by the personnel of the Consorzio. These rare vinegars earn the privilege of being bottled in hand blown 100 ml. bottles of their respective regions; the Modenese use the distinctive flask shaped bottle created by Giugiaro of Ferrari design fame.
EXTRAVECCHIO | Sealed with the white cork capsule signifying the highest level of Consorzio grading. Viscosity of maple syrup, with an opalescent radiance. Extremely aromatic, with flavor notes of sun-dried plums, dried herbs, and sweet, slightly tannic finish.
