San Giacomo Essenza Balsamic - 100 ml - Reggio Emelia, Italy

Andrea has created this hidden gem. A sophisticated Balsamic with the personality of a Red Seal Tradizionale. Beautiful!

This exquisite balsamic, Essenza is velvety smooth with a lingering tang and flavor, making it a perfect complement to creamy desserts, meat and well-seasoned cheeses.

Essenza is made from cooked-down grape must aged in small wood barrels. Distinguishing it from other balsamics, it is aged on the second floor of the barn of the Acetaia (traditional vinegar making establishment), allowing it to benefit from Italy's summertime heat, which concentrates and improves its structure and aroma.

About the Producer
Acetaia San Giacomo has barrels of the vinegar gold already in excess of 50 years when it began its commercial life. In the mid 1990s, the work of maintaining the acetaia and producing its noble liquid was taken over by Andrea, a lawyer by trade.

The long years of work, a true labor of love, for Andrea was rewarded by three certifications, Red for minimum 12 years of aging, Silver for 18 years aging and Gold for 25 years of aging.

Essenza is thicker and more mature
This balsamic has changed. From subtle elements that danced in your mouth, it never quite cut it for all around use. It is now still the same very sophisticated flavor profile that you only see in a truly "aged" balsamic, with the added syrupy thickness normally only found in bottles that are much much older! This slender bottle is very very special.
