La Vecchia Dispensa 40-yr Balsamic Condimento
40 ml bottle
- Modena, Italy

 
This Balsamic Condimento can trace its roots back forty years - a rarity for something so old to be put on the market, and its thickness is telltale sign of good things to come. This is an aged balsamic, naturally thickened by evaporation. It has a smell that only reveals a whiff of caramelised sugar and acid; however, no hint of the joys to come.

The flavor opens with woody notes and hints of truffle before blossoming into a very complex fruit filled mid palate with a cascade of blackberry and black cherry notes. It moves quickly to a nice nutty, almost buttery in the wine sense. Finished with a pleasant amount of back-of-the-palate acid. Leaning into to the acididity, we found this to be an exceptional "sipper", and one that would go well with duck, venison, and game birds.
