(Protected Geographical Indication) is a product without any addition of aromatic substances, coloring or other additives; the specific intense taste is given by the excellent locally sourced ingredients and from the aging in wooden barrels that naturally transmit their own characteristics to the vinegar.

It is the result of unique lands and a hundreds of years of wisdom, is a clear and brilliant brown, intense, almost black color. It has a sweet-sour taste with a harmony between acidity and sweetness and with slightly acidic and delicate aroma and with woody notes. The secret of Modena Balsamic Vinegar secret is comprised of three factors: the Grapes, the Ground and Climate (or environment). Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI may only be produced in the provinces of Modena and Reggio Emilia, obtained exclusively from Lambrusco, Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Albana, Ancellotta, and Fortana Montuni.

It is made from cooked or concentrated must with the addition of a part of aged wine vinegar for at least 10 years. It has an aging in cask from a minimum of 60 days up to more than 3 years for the product to be called ‘aged’ on the label. The fermentation takes place immediately in large vats, and then it is moved into barrels constructed from precious woods such as oak, chestnut, mulberry and juniper.

When aged to perfection the final product is filtered and subjected to a “final exam” (analytical and organoleptic). Only after meeting the standard requirements can it be certified as an authentic balsamic vinegar of Modena. +
