Organic Balsamico di Modena
Simone’s Aceto Balsamico has nothing in common with (organic) supermarket products, which are often coarse or unpleasantly sour and conceal their defects with sugar and dye. No – this reddish-brown balsamic is a true artisanal speciality, lovingly aged for at least 12 months in the oak barrels that Simone inherited from his great-grandfather.
To make this special vinegar, Simone uses only grapes from his own vineyard. 70% of his vineyard goes to the Lambrusco Grasparossa grape variety, typical of the region. 30% falls on white Trebbiano Modenese, normally used for the traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena.
The result of this artisan production process can be smelled and tasted: a multi-layered aromatic scent rises up into your nose, while woody and fruity notes spread out on your palate and linger for a long time. “Retrogusto” is what the Italians call it – once you’ve tasted this quality, you won’t want to go back
