Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena - Extra Vecchio

Formaggio Kitchen Exclusive

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

This small bottle contains something quite extra-ordinary inside. This is Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena extra vecchio which literally means "extra old" and is the highest level of balsamic quality in Italy. 

This balsamic is made by the Biancardi family just outside of the city of Modena. They use the must of their own grapes to create the beautiful balance of this balsamic with a deep agro-dolce (sour sweet) flavor with complex, rounded notes that can only be developed over years of aging in mulberry, cherry, juniper and chestnut barrels.

The extra vecchio is thicker and sweeter than their affinato balsamic and is best used sparingly in dishes where its complex flavor can be highlighted. Try a drop or two on a piece of Parmigiano-Reggiano or sprinkled over some vanilla ice cream (seriously... it works).
