The "oracle" of Traditional Balsamic of Modena. The "real deal."
Bright with shiny radiance and stunning mirror effects. Almost petroleum-like in viscosity. Extremely aromatic, with notes of tobacco, chocolate and dry fruit. Bright and ticklish impact on the palate, the unique sweet and sour bursts of generous intensity. The taste buds come alive with evolving rich flavors of sun-dried plums, dried currants and caramel. Outstanding long, sweet, slightly tannic finish.
Serve by the spoonful as a novel aperitif or digestif at the end of the meal. Traditionally drizzled over chunks of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese as an appetizer, this is a balsamic vinegar to enjoy in its simplest and purest form. Drizzle over scallopine sauteed in butter, or a very crisp veal Milanese. Bring a perfect meal to a brilliant end to the palate with a bowl of vanilla gelato drizzled with Extra Vecchio. Splurge by drizzling over very ripe strawberries when in season.
