Using the same process like the Tradizionale, this real Italian balsamic vinegar is produced solely from cooked-down grape must, carefully aged and fermented in barrels of various woods. The nose of this medium-thick condimento balsamic vinegar opens both sweet and tart, with notes of molasses and hints of fruit. Sweet and fruity on the tip of the tongue, a pleasant amount of acid creates an interplay of sweet and sour on the mid-palate that is a sheer pleasure. This delicious condimento leaves one with the impression that the balance of sweet and sour leans slightly to the sweet. Serving Suggestions – San Giacomo’s balsamic condimento is wonderfully versatile. Andrea Bezzecchi of San Giacomo suggests it for salads, grilled meats, young cheeses, and ice cream…and we could not disagree.
