The 12 year balsamic from Fattoria Estense originates from the Gran Riserva cask at the farm in Modena, Italy. This wood barrel aged balsamic vinegar is made in the traditional method by multi-generational family owned Fattoria Estense. While many non-imported balsamic vinegars are made with carmel color, sugar, or flavoring, there are no additives in this recipe passed down between generations. Traditional methods ensure a distinct flavor and each year can differ slightly due to natural elements in the environment. The “secret” family recipe in this vinegar makes it very special.
Stored in an elegant glass bottle with a wooden/cork stopper branded with the wax mark of Fattoria Estense. You will find this balsamic vinegar to be creamy, sweet and dense with a perfect final hint of its 6% acidity. This balsamic is perfect accompaniment to cheeses and on desserts. Traditional balsamic vinegar can be used in tiny amounts as a condiment with cooked or cured meats, grilled fish, drizzled over fresh fruits and berries and even ice cream or other custard desserts—or even just sipped from tiny shot glasses at the end of a meal.
This vinegar will definitely have you coming back for more.
