San Giacomo Agro di Mosto - 250ml

Country of Origin: Italy
Region: Emilia-Romagna
City / Village: Novellara

We recently discovered this wonderful producer of Balsamico at a recent Salon del Gusto in Turin Italy. In addition to their Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia they produce a number of other amazing balsamic products including this agro di mosto.

Agro di Mosto is similar to Saba in that it is made from the same cooked grape must (Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes) used for producing balsamico by reducing by 1/3 over an open fire which caramelizes the sugars and concentrates the flavors. Following this common beginning, agro di mosto is fermented and aged in the first barrel of the balsamic production for 2 - 3 years.

Agro di mosto has therefore still a good bit of the sugars that it started with, but it has also started to develop some of the tanginess you will taste in the older balsamics. We love to use this when we are building a reduction sauce.

About Acetaia San Giacomo:
We recently discovered this wonderful producer of Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale (ABT) di Reggio-Emilia at the Salon del Gusto and we are happy to have it on our shelves in time for the holidays. The tradizionale vinegars are all of a minimum level of quality as defined by the consortium and while it would be easy to then consider all such vinegars equal, there can be distinct qualitative differences from one producer to the next. Our vinegars are from 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 for pressing and cooking; cooking the mosto at a lower temperature for a longer period of time; maintaining
a low residual sugar content so that the full complexity of flavors comes through and the vinegar is only aged and stored in wood and never in steel. We have a wide selection of vinegars including the Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale in red seal, silver seal and gold seal as well as their saba, vincotto and condimento balsamico.
