Balsamic Vinegar & Condimento Bianco Balsamic Vinegar & Condimento BiancoHere’s a little crash course on our Balsamic Vinegar imported from ItalyFirstly, why are they imported? Because Aceto Balsamico di Modena (ABM) is a protected term that may only be used for Balsamic Vinegar made in Modena, Italy. This feature of the designation Balsamic vinegar is given is an implicit statement of the type of processing and aging used. In 2009, ABM gained the recognition of PROTECTED GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATION (IGP). This feature of the designation is a guarantee of the geographic origin of the vinegar. It is a mark of origin that is awarded by the European Union in agri-food products and methods typical of a specific geographical area. The ingredients of ABMIGP are regulated by European specification that allow the use of the cooked must of native Modenese varieties of grapes combined with fine red wine vinegar. Grape must is whole pressed grapes, complete with juice, skin, seeds and stems. The mixture thus produced, which varies in thickness in relation to the percentage of the two above mentioned elements, is aged in wooden barrels for various lengths of time (up to 3 years). The product is bottled after passing a qualitative examination by an accredited laboratory. The density varies between products from a minimum of 1.08 to a maximum of 1.34 The colour should always be a deep brown. The acidity of ABM must be at least 6% .
