Our finest grade of aged balsamic condimento from Modena, Italy is produced in the traditional style– it is aged, using the Solera System, for up to 18 years in chestnut, oak, mulberry, and ash barrels. With 4% acidity, it exceeds Four Leaf Quality with an astonishingly high natural density of 1.28+. This spectacular density comes naturally without thickeners or added sugar, from a lengthy aging process and cooking in copper kettles. It is exceedingly rich, complex and dense, and pairs beautifully with ANY olive oil in our collection. Use for vinaigrettes, bread dipping, glazes, drizzling over fruit or vegetables, and for marinades.
