Compagnia Del Montale Vigna Oro Balsamic Vinegar
This is literally the best commercial balsamic the market has to offer. It is rich and thick and has a beautiful balance between sweet and tart, with an incredibly smooth finish. Vigna Oro is made from grapes from Modena region and aged in oak and cherry barrels for a minimum of ten years. (See why we only discuss balsamics in terms of minimum aging). Vigna Oro is all natural, made without any additives or coloring agents. It is as close to a Traditional Balsamic as possible, as it is made with the same rich cooked grape must used to make Traditional Balsamics and contains the minimal amount of red wine vinegar required by the Consortium of Modena. Balsamic vinegars are made from a variety of grapes that are picked while they’re still ripe.
This balsamic is the WINNER OF THE DIAMOND AWARD at the “Superior Taste Award” event which takes please in Belgium annually consisting of 50 Sommeliers and 50 chefs judging foods. Vigna Oro has won this award so many consecutive years, they felt obligated to provide a “Superior “ award to this product which is called the “Diamond Award”. This balsamic compares to a DOP traditional balsamic of Modena which costs around $200 and it has passed as a DOP in blind tests, it’s 100% pure, no additives - simply trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes exclusively from Modena aged in both French oak and cherry barrels. It’s like a fine wine!
Serving Suggestions: Great served over parmesan cheese, drizzled over grilled vegetables, meats and fresh mozzarella, in finishing sauces or over strawberries and even ice cream!
