There’s an astounding difference between grocery store “balsamics” (6% acidity with sugar and food coloring), and balsamics that have a history of love aged in a barrel. Our selections come from family businesses where aging vinegars and preparation methods are passed from generation to generation.
Although there are many balsamic bottlers out there, we prefer to work with families and producer that we know – that way we know we are getting the real thing. We met both the La Vecchia family (from Modena) and San Giacomo (from Reggio Emilia) many years ago — and we love what they do with their products.
La Vecchia has a nice variety of balsamic of different ages from 6 years old, to 100 years old, as well as the more traditionally understood Vecchio and Extra Vecchio balsamic.
San Giacomo has a wonderful condiment, as well as an apple balsamic, a saba, and red, silver and gold seal balsamic. All delicious!
So look around. With such a broad selection, if you are looking for something special for yourself or the gourmet in your life, you are likely to find something that suits your pallet and your pocketbook here.
