ELISIR DI BALSAMICO 6yrs (250ml)
Elisir di Balsamico 6 yrs is 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.
Aceto Balsamico di Modena is the most popular and well know of the balsamic world but there are so many variations in different parts of Italy that are yet to be explored. Other varieties of grapes can be used to produce balsamic vinegar, one of them being the Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso grape grown only in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region called Elisir di Balsamico.
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 uniqueness of this balsamic, is that the grape in grown in a sandy alluvial soil, making the taste quite distinct.
The grapes are cooked in open aired stainless steel vats, then left to mature in oak barrels over time, absorbing all woody flavours. 100% natural , no additives, preservatives or sweeteners just natural sulphates.
