25 Star Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
25 Star Aged Balsamic Vinegar at New Canaan Olive Oil
Why we love it: Just a drop of this aged balsamic goes a long way! It is the perfect balance of sweetness with a syrupy consistency.
Description: This all-natural, Barrel Aged Traditional Style Balsamic is made for us by one of the most renowned makers of Balsamic Vinegars in Italy. It is made in Modena, Italy using traditional methods. First quality grape must, which is obtained from whole pressed grapes from locally grown late-harvested varietals, particularly Trebbiano and Lambrusco, is reduced by roughly half and left to ferment naturally for up to three weeks. The resulting concentrated grape must is then blended with a small amount of premium aged wine vinegar to balance the acidity and matured further in Slavonia Oak casks.
The resulting Balsamic is a glossy and viscous dark brown, with beautiful orange reflections. It has a velvety texture and a slight fruity sweetness.
Suggested Uses: Drizzle over tomato and mozzarella, serve with aged Parmesan cheese, dress salads, finish stews, risottos, scallops, grilled meats and fish. It is also extraordinary over fresh cut berries, melon and vanilla ice cream.
Favorite Pairings: This balsamic pairs beautifully with any olive oil
