Gold Label Balsamic Vinegar of Modena - Organic and Biodynamic Certified - 250ml
This delicious gold label balsamic vinegar is produced in small batches by the Guerzoni family on their organic and biodynamic certified farm. They produce the only biodynamic certified balsamic vinegars available in the world.
This gold label balsamic vinegar is produced from a precise blend of Modena (Lambrusco and Trebbiano) cooked grape must. The cooked grape must mature within the slow acidification derived from natural fermentation and progressive concentration in barrels of different woods, with no chemical or flavouring additives.
After prolonged boiling, made with the “open sky and direct fire” traditional method (mass-production industry now use vacuum cooking that is much quicker, but leaves little flavour remaining in the grape must), the concentrated cooked must is removed from the boiler to be left to cool for at least 48 hours.
Then the liquid is filtered and checked for taste and quality. After a rest in a special iron tank, the grape must is added with a small quantity of wine vinegar to start the “acidification process”, then it is put into natural wood barrels to begin the refining process.
The years it spends in the various natural wooden barrels adds to the complex taste of this delicious vinegar. It is the slow acetic fermentation qualifies it as Traditional Modena Balsamic Vinegar, with it's thick syrupy texture and the reason that absolutely no preservatives are needed.
Ideal for special occasions, with its intense fragrance and full blend of perfectly balanced sweet and sour notes.
