Balsamic Vinegars

I.G.P. Balsamic Vinegar

Certified I.G.P. by the Consorzio di Modena, this balsamic was artfully crafted with the highest amount of Italian grape must to balance out this vinegar’s 6% acidity. The resulting product is a well-balanced, rich, sharp, and velvety-smooth balsamic. In comparison with our Traditional 18 Year Style balsamic, our I.G.P. is agreeably more savory with just the right amount of sweetness. Such characteristics can be attributed to the quantities of barrel aged wine vinegar and grape must used in this delicious Gold Line batch of balsamic. This multifaceted and versatile vinegar is just about the perfect ingredient for all manners of food, but most importantly, it is very well-suited for those on special diets and the ideal pairing for any olive oil.

18 Year Traditional Style

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.  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, glazes, marinades, bread dipping, drizzling over fruit, vegetables or to marinate meat and poultry.
