Extra-Aged Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena DOP - Organic Certified - 100ml


Organic Certified Additive and Filler Free Gluten Free Suitable for Vegans Packed in Glass

This incredible and supreme (DOP certified) balsamic vinegar is the result of a unique period of ageing of more than 25 years. It is produced in very small batches by the Guerzoni family on their organic and biodynamic-certified farm. They produce the only biodynamic-certified balsamic vinegar available in the world.

This superb condiment has its origins in the Estensi tradition. This product has received one of the most aspired certifications in the food sector: the DOP mark. It is only obtained by ageing the cooked grape must in barrels made from different types of wood and sizes for over 25 years.

Due to the natural process of vinegar's evaporation and condensation, the barrels are topped up with vinegar contained in the previous barrel in order of size every year. This way, the product is refined over time and absorbs all the aromas transferred from the wood on which it has rested.

In addition, the Guerzoni family has incorporated biodynamic principles into the production. Each type of wooden cask that the vinegar is moved between is associated with a particular planet in the solar system, e.g., the moon with Cherry, Mercury with Mulberry, the Sun with Ash, Mars with Oak, Jupiter with Maple, and Saturn with Juniper.

Before being bottled, the vinegar has to exceed very strict inspections concerning density and acidity and sensory examinations by the Commission of Tasting at the Chamber of Commerce of Modena; only after passing these tests may it take the prestigious name of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena DOP. As an additional guarantee, the vinegar is also bottled by the Chamber of Commerce.

It is ideal for special occasions, with its intense fragrance and full blend of perfectly balanced tastes.
