Aceto Balsamico di Modena

What is Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO?

“The real Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is produced in the area of ​​the old estates of Estensi.
It is obtained from a cooked grape must. It’s matured by slow acidification and derived from natural fermentation. With a growing concentration through very long ageing. It is carried out in a series of tubs of different woods without the addition of aromatic essences.
Dark brown, full and shiny. It shows its density in a correct and fluid syrup.
It has a characteristic and complex aroma. Likewise, it’s penetrating, with an evident but pleasant and harmonious acidity.
With a traditional and unique sweet and sour taste, well-balanced. It is generously full. Savoury with velvety tones in accordance with its own olfactory characteristics.”

On the market, we find countless quantities of products with the Balsamic Vinegar denomination. They have completely different prices, from a few cents to several hundred euros per bottle. Why? How to choose? What is the difference?

The price of a Balsamic Vinegar is determined by:
1)Ingredients used
2)Period and type of ageing

And we passionate experts know it well!
