18 Year Traditional Balsamic




This spectacular vinegar comes naturally without thickeners or added sugar, from a lengthy aging process and cooking in copper kettles. Our 18 Year Traditional Balsamic has the perfect balance and structure of sweet and sour, notes of prune and caramel with a creamy texture. Exceedingly rich, complex and dense our aged balsamic is a premium example of a high quality balsamic condimento that pairs well with almost every olive oil in our collection. Use for vinaigrettes, glazes, marinades, bread dipping, drizzling over fruit, vegetables or to marinate meat and poultry.

*Pairs beautifully with any olive oil in our collection.

  • Highly aromatic and intensely flavorful
  • Lower-fat alternative to many processed salad dressings
  • Great for adding a splash of brightness when finishing sauces and soups
  • Pair with your favorite cheese or reduce to a syrup and drizzle over ice cream for a decadent dessert
  • Mix with soda water for a refreshing spritzer, or with something harder for a specialty cocktail

Please note, our multi-purchase discount punch card system is offered only for in-store purchases and is not available for online and phone purchases.

My brother, whom is an executive chef, & his wife introduced me to this balsamic vinegar. They said it’s the best they’ve ever found & I second that! It’s thicker than balsamics I’ve bought in the past too, which I love. Seems to help it stick better to the food, such as the rack of lamb I did w herbs & this vinegar. The flavor is outstanding. I’m hooked for life!!

Perfect Balsamic!

This is THE best balsamic vinegar I have ever found! Have introduced it to friends, who weren’t keen on balsamic, finding them generally too acidic. But not this one! New converts and more on the way! Excellent product!!
