Wild Berry Balsamic Condimento
The La Vecchia Dispensa Berry Vinegar
is a melange of wild berry flavors, sweet but not cloying. Good for decorating a lovely platter of roasted potatoes, drizzling over sauteed mushrooms, dolloping onto a fresh slice of mozzarella perched on bruschetta, or for saucing up some herbed grilled chicken or garlicky shrimp. Perfect choice for the ubercool new cocktail: the balsamic vinegar martini! It’s a martini made with the usual suspects (vodka or gin with a dry vermouth) plus a sinker of the sweet stuff...Ta Da! Yours is the hippest minibar in town.
Made with 30th Anniversary Balsamic Vinegar and wild berry juice. Aged in oak casks.
Modena Balsamic is a matured vinegar made from the boiled must of choice grapes grown in the Province of Modena, with the addition of colonies of vinegar bacteria known as "mothers". In the aging process, the vinegar is transferred between a succession of barrels of different sizes and different types of wood. Balsamic vinegar is dark brown in color, has a piercing aroma, attractive acid notes, and becomes denser as it ages.
Skilled vinegar makers each have their own secrets, handed down by word of mouth from generation to generation. It is the aging process that gives each balsamic vinegar it's unique characteristics.
Balsamic is still made in the traditional way, by fermenting the must of Trebbiano grapes in barrels of costly woods - oak, mulberry, chestnut, cherry and juniper - which over the years gradually gives the vinegar it's inimitable fragrance and flavor.
