As the staples of every cuisine, oil and vinegar always set the stage for a great meal. From bottles that are pressed just hours after harvest to choices that hail from Tuscany, Liguria, Puglia and Sicily, the options are endless. We purchase our oil as fresh as possible to retain a rich, complex taste and our vinegars are as fine as wine with distinct flavor profiles that can make any dish come to life.
Essenza 8 Year Balsamic
Andrea Bezzecchi from the San Giacomo estate has created this sophisticated balsamic condiment that has the intensity and personality of a tradizionale balsamico. Essenza, translating into "the heart, essence, or nature of an item", is made from the exact same cooked grape must (Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes) used for the production of Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale. What's the diffenece? As with the tradizionale, the cooked grape must is aged in batteries of wood barrels of smaller and smaller size and of various woods. The difference is in the aging process. By interupting the natural aging process earlier, this specialty has a concentrated fruitiness that is velvety smooth and a less developed flavor of the woods used in the process of producing Aceto Balsamic Tradizionale which is aged for a longer period of time regulated the Consortium. It is the perfect compliment to desserts, fruits, cheeses and meat dishes.$ 49.95 | 8.4 oz
Tradizionale Balsamic of Modena (12 year)
Available in very limited quantities. In the spring of 2013, when we visited the Acetaia Ponterotto owned by the Tagliavini family, we knew that a family with as much pride, character, and values of producing this traditional balsamic had to be producing something very special. The techniques Tagliavini uses to produce this balsamic are the product of centuries of development and fine-tuning. Generations of vinegar makers have used the same set of rules, and they will continue to. Tagliavini himself may never see the 25-year form of this year's batch of mosto, but others will take his place. The tradition continues. A farmer who produces grape mosto (must) destined to become balsamic will have to spend hours concentrating the must before aging it in an elaborate system of wooden barrels. The annual batch of mosto will be intermingled with a co-aging liquid that will slowly and gently transform into vinegar. In Modena, the vineyards have long been adapted to producing a mosto of such quality as to allow long aging into a dense, vinegar-based condiment. But still, this raw base takes years of careful tending by a vinegar maker. After the 12-year mark or especially after the 25-year mark, the balsamic becomes a dense, complex elixir that is only mildly evocative of grapes or vinegar.$ 120.00 | 3.5 oz
