Description & Details

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. The must was not cooked down as much as in the case of many condimentos, allowing for a greater expression of fruit flavors. It has a backward nose that only reveals a whiff of caramelised sugar and acid, 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, finish with a pleasant amount of back-of-the-palate acid. Leaning slightly to the acid we found this to be an exceptional "sipper", and one that would go well with duck, venison, and game birds.
