Balsamic Aged in Olivewood Barrels, Italy, Cattani
This new premium vinegar is made from indigenous grapes from the Cattani’s own vineyard in the Modenese hills. It is aged for just over 8 years in oak and then finished in olivewood barrels. It is thick and rich with a nice balance between sweetness and acidity. The initial balsamic flavor finishes with a hint of molasses and vanilla. Drizzle over ripe tomatoes, parmesan cheese and vanilla ice cream.
From the area of Modena, this is the work of a family passionate about their vinegar. Their tradizionale is crafted with the inherited battery of casks. Their attention and knowledge carries through to this white balsamic. No longer Organic-certified, the producers continue to craft this vinegar with organic methods.
Best for rich preparations where only a drizzle will do. Finish roasted meats, a finish in Cappelini en Brodo, over ice cream, with fruit, and of course, caprese. Estimated age: 8 years.
