Acetaia San Giacomo, from Emilia Romagna, is proud of producing balsamics that consistently go above and beyond the consortium requirements for quality grapes and traditonal methods of production, making their balsamics some of the best we've ever had. They choose only the highest quality grapes for pressing and cooking; cook the mosto at a lower temperature for a longer period of time; maintain a low residual sugar content so that the full complexity of flavors comes through and only age the vinegar in wood (never in steel.)

This Red seal is the base level of grading for the balsamico tradizionales, making it less expensive than the silver and gold seals, but still a very precious vinegar.  It has a lightly viscous body and it has brighter flavors than the Silver and the Gold seal vinegars. Drizzle over a nice aged piece of Parmigiano Reggiano or some fresh fruit and gelato.

Acetaia San Giacomo

We discovered this wonderful producer of Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale (ABT) di Reggio-Emilia at the Salon del Gusto in Turin Italy.

While all tradizionale vinegars are of a minimum level of quality as defined by the D.O.P. stndards, there can be distinct qualitative differences from one producer to the next.

Acetaia San Giacomo is a small producer who reaches beyond the consortium's requirements to produce the best traditional product they can.

This means choosing only the highest quality grapes and giving each batch their undivided attention as the must is cooked, fermented, acetified and aged.

We have a wide selection of their vinegars including the Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale in red, silver and gold seal as well as their saba, vincotto and condimento balsamico.
