AGED BALSAMIC VINEGAR GIFT SET
AGED BALSAMIC VINEGAR GIFT SET: A unique and beautiful gift for anyone who loves aged balsamic. Your gift is presented with two bottles of aged balsamic, one will be the 3 year old balsamic as the slots inside the box have been made to measure to accommodate this size bottle whilst the other is one of your choice a 6 year old or a 12 year old depending on tastes. The box is artisan hand made using light wood with a print on the front of the box the logo “VALPANERA” the producers who have made the balsamic.
Made in the North East region of Italy in the Roman town of Aquilea near the Adriatic Sea, the Balsamic Vinegars are made by the Valpanera Winery using only the Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso grape. One of the oldest grape in Italy dating back to the Romans.
Contains no thickening agents, no colorants, preservatives of flavourings just 100% Refosco grape.
The procedure of the Balsamic vinegar is labour intensive and lengthy affair like a good wine and whisky, this is reflected in the price and some may question the quality of a vinegar that can be bought from a supermarket at a low price, for commercial production white wine vinegar and sugar is added to emulate the traditional vinegar.
The grapes are cooked in stainless steel vats and are then stored in French oak barrels, the process is all natural and contains no thickening agents, no colorants, preservatives of flavourings, just natural occurring sulphites which are present in wine. Over time the balsamic will thicken due to evaporation and become almost like treacle when pouring.
Salads, drizzled over parmesan and gorgonzola cheese, on your meats and roasted potatoes, on strawberries and ice cream.
