Estilo "Affinato" di Modena Balsamic




Estilo “Affinato” di Modena dark balsamic vinegar has the highest density of any vinegar we carry.  Made from the highest quality grape must, this product is super thick and complex, layering flavor throughout.  Boasting a 1.36 density and 6% acidity, the vinegar possesses a balance of sweet and sour with perfect harmony and texture. At tastings, we have only experienced the words “wow” and “incredible”.  Notes of plum, honey and cherry make this vinegar exceptionally appealing and unique.

  • 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
