How is this exceptional PGI Balsamic Vinegar of Modena made?​


To obtain a high-quality Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, the cooked grape must, and the wine vinegar are naturally fermented in oak barrels in attics. Each year of its maturation, the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is transferred into smaller and smaller barrels. Each of them is used for specific purposes: alcoholic and acetic fermentation, maturation and ageing. ​


It is through this slow process that the grapes reveal all their power and aromas, to create this  sublime elixir!​
