About Aceto Balsamico:

A kitchen staple for centuries in Mediterranean homes, balsamic vinegar is the natural conclusion of the winemaking process.  An integral part of Italian culture & cooking, enthusiasts of balsamic vinegar go well beyond the Mediterranean.  Balsamic vinegar is made from fresh grape juice & crafting quality balsamic vinegar requires as much care as making fine wine.  

Since the eleventh century, balsamic vinegar has been a specialty of the northern town of Modena & its surrounding countryside where it was used as a drink or digestif.  As part of the landed gentry class of history, society & cuisine; balsamic vinegar was a prized possession & stored in the attic under lock & key.  As a family heirloom, it passed from one generation to the next by the youngest daughter, carrying the vinegar the furthest into a family’s future as it aged.

Science, skill & experience are still used to handcraft balsamic vinegar. To this day grapes are carefully selected, cleaned and crushed. The freshly pressed juice is then slowly simmered to avoid caramelization or burning of the natural sugars in the grape juice. The result is a reduction called cooked must or “mosto cotto”. The must is then aged in a series of wooden casks in successively smaller sizes, (acaia, ash, cherry, chestnut, juniper, mulberry, oak & walnut).
