Traditional Style 18 Year

Our finest balsamic vinegar from Modena, Italy. Produced in the traditional Modena style and aged up to 18 years in Oak barrels, this balsamic is thick, incredibly smooth and sweet. Very diverse; thick and potent enough to be dripped onto a dish as a condiment and also balanced enough so it will pair well with one of our olive oils in a salad dressing.

Notes: The acidity of our Traditional Balsamic vinegar makes it pair extremely well with our sweeter oils and with sweet foods, such as fresh fruit or even ice cream.

Vanilla

This balsamic is made with our 18 year aged traditional style balsamic and Tahitian vanilla beans! Unassuming vanilla is the perfect complement to our lavender balsamic or

mixes perfectly with our blood orange olive oil.

Also- this vanilla is supreme on fresh berries with ice cream!

Wild Blueberry

This Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar exhibits lower acidity and a bit more sweetness than our Aceto Balsamico de Modena. Like all Balsamic Vinegars, you can use this Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar over any garden salad. While it will pair up with any unflavored oil, using lighter Extra Virgin oil like Arbequina or Mission will allow you to experience the maximum Blueberry flavor.

Notes: It is very tasty and unique paired with Blood Orange or Lemon olive oils. Try it drizzled over fresh sliced peaches, cantaloupe, fruit salad and ice cream. As an added surprise, we found it equally delicious over Blue, Feta and Goat Cheeses.
