As a luxury variant among the balsamic kinds of vinegar, Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale is usually under the DOP designation Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena. Such a balsamic vinegar may only be obtained from regional ingredients. More specifically, only certain grape varieties, such as Trebbiano, Lambrusco, and Sauvignon from Emilia-Romagna, may be boiled down to make Acetum White Wine Vinegar of Modena with Grape Must. Without the addition of preservatives and dyes, this traditionally made balsamic vinegar ages for at least 12 years in oak, chestnut or cherry oak barrels. If the maturity of the traditional balsamic vinegar lasts even 25 years, it gets the title "extra Vecchio".

Acetum White Wine Vinegar of Modena with Grape Must develops an intensely fruity and slightly sweet flavor during ripening. Its consistency is barely liquid at the end but resembles syrup. Because much of the liquid evaporates over the years, only small amounts can be sold. 

The history of Balsamic

Around 1600, the nobles settled in the northern Italian city of Modena Acetaias. These are attics for vinegar barrels. It owes its existence to the interaction of the unique, local microclimate.It is said that it was created by sheer coincidence. Someone forgot some boiled grape must in the attic, and over time, they developed the unique, distinctive qualities that we now know from Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale.

This valuable vinegar soon became part of the aristocratic family fortune: it regulated its whereabouts in the will or bequeathed it as a dowry to young, noble brides. Thus, since the Renaissance, vinegar from the manufacturer of the Duchy of Este, known as "Acetaia", has been praised as the "Black Gold of Modena" in the highest strata of the European nobility.

It was only in the twentieth century that precious vinegar left the secret attics of the noble palaces of Modena and became the epitome of the culture and culinary tradition of the region.

Which wood gives the Balsamic which taste?

The choice of wood is a secret in the production of vinegar. The barrels of different woods bring the strong, fruity-aromatic notes into the noble elixir. 

  • Oakwood - is a precious wood that gives the best-aged finish well-aged aceti. It gives the vinegar a distinctive aroma with vanilla notes.
  • Chestnut wood - is particularly rich in tannins, it gives the vinegar the typical brown color and favors the maturation process.

  • Cherry wood - is a precious wood that emphasizes the sweet notes of vinegar and balances the acidity of the vinegar.

  • Mulberry wood - is the most breathable wood. In mulberry barrels, the aceti increases their concentration considerably, making them particularly dense.

  • Ashwood - the compact, very light wood contains hardly any tannins. It creates the ideal climate to ripen and preserve the noble Elixir balancing.
