Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena extravecchio dop
is a superlative dressing, fruit of old traditionof the Estensedynasty, which obtained one of the most important alimentary certification: the D.O.P. mark(denomination of protected origin). It is produced by ageing cooked grape must, acetified in casks which are all strictly of different sizes and woods. The Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena extraold benefits from a unique period of ageing, lasting more than 25 years.
Each year, as it ages, vinegar evaporates out, further thickening the vinegar and concentrating the flavour, so each barrel is topped up with vinegar taken from the next barrel up.
Before being bottled, the vinegar undergoes stringent testing by the Tasting Commission of the Modena Chamber of Commerce, which assesses characteristics of density and acidity as well as organoleptic properties. Only after passing these tests can the product boast the prestigious name “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena extravecchio”. As an additional guarantee for consumers, the Modena Producers Consortium actually bottles the product batch inside the Chamber of Commerce. This Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena extraold can be considered truly unique since, right from the beginning, the “Acetaia Guerzoni” vinegar loft has only ever used organic and biodynamic grapes. Its best natural couplings: with meat dishes, vegetables, cheeses. Its typical taste is exalted by fruit and ice cream.
