Acetomodena Goccia Oro Balsamic Vinegar IGP of Modena 250ml


“Drop of Gold” Balsamic vinegar with 75% cooked grape must

Acetomodena delivers this IGP balsamic to America that is distinctively of higher quality and taste than most regular Balsamic of Modena IGPs. The IGP version of balsamic is what is mostly seen on grocery store shelves in America. By law, balsamic vinegar of Modena has the two principle ingredients of cooked grape must and wine vinegar. Many products seen on shelves in the US contain amounts of up to 60% of wine vinegar, resulting in a thin and watery body — that is sometimes enhanced with caramel coloring — and a sharply acidic taste that typically results in coughing. Acetomodena’s Goccia Oro contains a very high percentage of cooked grape must (from their own family vineyards) and a low percentage of wine vinegar, which mixed together, have been aged and ‘vinegarised’ for up to three years in quality wooden barrels. This results in a sweet yet delicate and balanced balsamic which, with a slight hit of acidity, renders it  incredibly versatile in the kitchen. It is a a rich, thick and sweet vinegar unlike any regular Balsamic of Modena you have had. This vinegar is ideal for salad dressings, as accompaniment for mature cheeses or for cooking.
