Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia - Gold Seal - 3.5 oz/100 ml, by Acetaia Terra del Tuono, Italy.
This extraordinary complex and all natural product is the fruit of a dedicated craftsmanship, respecting rigorous traditions. In order to obtain such a prestigious balsamic vinegar, over 25 years of slow aging via consecutive transfers in various sized barrels made of aromatic woods like oak, chestnut, mulberry, cheery and juniper is required, which bestow unique balsamic aromas to the vinegar. This harmonious perfection of tart aromas, noble structures provides a pleasant, long lasting taste sensation.
A treasure trove of delights for the palate to discover and savor, drop by drop, and rigorously straight from the bottle. The particular persistency of its flavor makes it the perfect elixir to round off a meal but its extraordinarily rich aroma and taste make for some astonishing and memorable marriages with a variety of cheeses and desserts.
After spending at least twenty five years in barrels replete with history and aroma, Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Reggio Emilia is ready to bestow the ultimate pleasure on the true gourmet. Those who prefer savories will relish it with their best, mature cheese. Dessert lovers will savor its combination with custard cream, chocolate desserts, ice cream and fruits of the forest and as the supreme ingredient in fillings for panettone and strudel.
To experience the full complexity of its noble and highly intense combination of perfumes and scents, try some on its own in a small glass: it should be sipped like a wine for meditation at the end of a meal.
