A truly wonderful "Balsamic" style vinegar is just that - wonderful. There is a change afoot to ensure that less-than-true balsamic vinegars cannot be designated as the authentic naturally aged "Italian Balsamic Vinegar".

There is something to be said for the DOP designation and for products to be monitored for quality and authenticity. On the other hand, there are amazing elixirs out there that will never have the official DOP designation from the Modena and Reggio Emilia consortium that are still, indeed, made the authetic way - the unique process is grapes cooked down and then is moved through a series of barrels often of different woods to age over years - and still delicious and special. 

The end result of all that care and feeding - magical! (To read more about the Balsamic Solera method of aging, CLICK HERE)
