Oil & Vinegar has selected the finest balsamic vinegars from the best vinegar houses in the Italian Modena. Matured in a natural way, without adding sugars, caramel or preservatives! With criteria on the producing method (Travasi versus Solera), density (thickness) and maturation period (the number of years), the balsamics have gain appreciation: Rosso, Bronze, Silver and Gold.

This Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP Bronze comes from the vinegar house Casa Emilia, which has also guarded the secret recipes and traditions surrounding the production process for ages. Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP Bronze has a density of 1,25 en is made according to the Solera method. It is a fruity and sweet balsamic vinegar that will stimulate the taste buds. The grape must is made of Trebbiano grapes and during the production they make use of chestnut wood barrels. Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP Bronze tastes delicious with meat, fish, cheese or in salads. It is best to add a good balsamic at the end of the dish, to maintain the smell, taste and aromas.

The longer the vinegar matures, the more viscous and thick it gets. The thickness will be expressed in a number of density. The higher the number, the more viscous and older the balsamic. The longer the vinegar matures, the more complex the taste gets.

The ‘Solera’ method’ uses one wooden barrel of 220 liters. After the harvest the barrel will be filled with grape must. Every year the barrel will be refilled with the new harvest. The ‘Travasi’ method makes use of more wooden barrels in different sizes, so the different types of wood will impart their own character of taste.

The designation IGP stands for ‘Indicazione Geografica Protetta’, which is a seal of approval for local products with a protected designation of origin. A balsamic may only have the name ‘Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP’ when this balsamic is tested and approved by both the so called Consorzi in Italy and the European Union. These parties stand for the traditional production methods and for the quality of the product.

The real joy starts with Balsamico di Modena IGP Bronze.
