Campari 15 YO Balsamic Vinegar 250 ml
This vinegar, only available in the United States within the last year or so, is one of the favorite vinegars sold in our store. It has a rich aroma of concentrated grape must with hints of raisin and wood, and rivals the tradizionale Balsamic Vinegars of Modena and Reggio Emilia. It is a great vinegar for a simple salad or wonderful on top of vanilla ice cream!
This 15-year aged balsamic vinegar begins with Lodovico Campari's passion for Modena, Italy. Trebbiano grapes are picked at their peak ripeness and the must that is obtained is then left to ferment in open top vessels. Once the cooked must has reduced by two thirds, it is then put in oak barrels. Each year, Campari's vinegar is transferred from one wood barrel to another, drawing distinctive and unmistakable aromas from each different kind of wood, cherry to juniper. The Balsamico is then left to experienced master tasters to decide its readiness.
The deep sapphire color, the limpidity, the thick velvety texture and the deep contrast between its initial sweet element and its final acidulous one, makes Campari's Aceto Balsamico one of the true jewels of Modena. It is perfect used as a condiment for meat, fish, vegetables and aged cheeses. For a unique and special treat, try it over strawberries and ice cream.
