  • Our finest balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy. Produced in the traditional Modena style and aged at least 18 years in Oak barrels.
     
    Tip: Very diverse; thick and potent enough to be dripped onto a dish as a condiment and also balanced enough so it will pair well with one of our olive oils in a salad dressing. The acidity of our Traditional Balsamic vinegar makes it pair extremely well with our sweeter oils and with sweet foods, such as fresh fruit or even ice cream.
