When only the very best will do, use Extra Vecchio Traditional
Balsamic Vinegar. Only the highest quality balsamic vinegars produced
in Modena can bear this label, and each is the sublime fruit of at least
25 years of supreme artistry, skill, and the pursuit of excellence.
They are their producers’ finest achievements.
This Extra Vecchio balsamic isn’t just the highest grade of balsamic
available. The producer, Compagnia del Montale, has won the Balsamic
Consortium’s Spilamberto Prize for finest balsamic of the year (the
highest honor in the industry) twice with their Extra Vecchio – once in
2003 and again in 2012.
3.5oz bottles may seem small, but it only takes a little extra vecchio vinegar to make food sing.
Traditional balsamic vinegars are characterized by a flavor that is
bright (acidic) yet dense, balanced in both sweet and sour, and richly
aromatic. They are a deep dark brown with a smooth, silky texture.
Extra Vecchio vinegar offers a better, more developed flavor than even
the exceptional Affinato vinegar.
How Extra Vecchio Vinegar is JudgedThe term “Traditional Balsamic Vinegar” (Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale)
is not simply a descriptive term for balsamic vinegars that have been
traditionally aged in cask, but a tightly controlled standard of quality
and indicator of aging. In order to be Tradizionale vinegars,
these products must have been aged at least 12 years and passed a series
of taste test evaluations overseen by the Consortium of Balsamic
Vinegar of Modena.
The term “Extra Vecchio” is even more tightly controlled, being essentially the highest honor and grade that can be awarded to Tradizionale vinegar. Traditional Extra Vecchio
vinegars are aged a minimum of 25 years, and must have received perfect
or near perfect scores in the Consortium’s tests. They are the finest
balsamic vinegars available.This balsamic vinegar was
traditionally made using a process that involves cooking 100%
Modena-grown grapes down into must, slow-aging that must in a series of
wooden casks, and finally bottling when the flavor and consistency is
just right. Read How Balsamic Vinegars are Made for more information.
