Essenza 8 Year

(San Giacomo) - 8.4 oz

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.
