San Giacomo Essenza - 100ml

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

We discovered this wonderful producer of Balsamico at 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 Condimento Essenza. 

Essenza is made from the same cooked must (Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes) used for producing traditional balsamic vinegar. The difference is in the aging, Essenza is aged between 8 and 10 years rather than the 12 years specified as the minimum for the traditional balsamic.  The result is a brighter balsamic with more sugar and a less developed woodsy flavors.  The additional years of aging that the Condimento Essenza goes through creates more developed flavors than what you will find in the normal Condimento (5-7 years). 

Excellent for drizzling over grilled meats or finishing pasta or risotto dishes.  For more information on balsamic vinegars, please visit
