The Fattoria Estense Extra Old Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is produced according to old family recipes passed down from generation to generation. It adheres to all of the international standards set forth by the many and varied regulating agencies.
The grape must and vinegars begin their acidification process and are then stored in barrels made of various kinds of wood for their indispensable maturing and aging process. During this period of time, the vinegar absorbs from the woods, the typical bouquet of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. The longer the vinegar is aged, the more complex it becomes.
