Traditional Balsamic vinegar of Modena is a product with a long history, Balsamic is one of gastronomy's most noble prudcts. Profundly aromatic, harmoniously sweet and complex, Balsamic is used to enrich a range of dishes. Based on cooked must- the cooked juice of ripe grapes, it draws its singular quality from prolonged ageing in a series of small barrels made of various woods and in descending volumes.
The barrels are indispensables to the ageing and bouquet of this extraordinary product.
The use of different aromatic hardwoods and fruitwoods in the construction of the barrels (Oak, Chestnut, Acacia, Ash, Cherry and Mulberry) requires special skills and discernement on the part of the cooper as no two woods are alike.
