About the product

  • Dense, complex & sweet
  • From Modena Italy
  • Very high grade
  • In 1999 Italy outlawed the practise of claiming "years aged" on Balsamic Vinegar bottles. Even so, some persist in the US to make such claims even though it would be illegal in Italy and goes counter to the rules governing IGP certification.
  • IGP certified

     This fine medium dencity vinegar is contained in beautiful heavy squat glass bottles with hardwood topped cork stoppers. This vinegar is quite dense, sweet and complex. This is a great middle grade Balsamic that is sweet and dense enough for bread dipping & drizzling, but acidic enough for salads and marinades. Balsamic vinegar is produced from grape juice that is concentrated by slow cooking in copper kettles. This "most" is blended with Red Wine Vinegar and then aged in wood casks. Balsamic vinegar is both fruity and acidic and is wonderful on salads or in marinades for meat, fish & poultry. We are pleased to announce that Cucina & Amore Balsamic has obtained PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) certification! The PGI seal recognizes Balsamic Vinegar of Modena producers who follow strict guidelines in producing an authentic product. PGI certified products must be produced in a certain geographical area (Modena, Italy), and must follow stringent rules in the making of their products. All manufacturers of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena in Italy and all of Europe must follow the PGI law and have the PGI seal on their product in order to be able to call the product “Balsamic Vinegar of Modena”. PGI certification establishes precise and clearly-defined rules for all producers of balsamic vinegar of Modena and is an opportunity for them to secure greater returns on their labor and investment. Above all, it encourages them to put local assets to the best possible use – in this case, the grape vines typical of Modena (Lambrusco, Ancellotta, Trebbiano, Fortana, Montuni, Sangiovese, Albana). Only grapes from these vines can be used for production.
