Method of working
Obtained from cooked grape, it must be aged for at least 12 years in a series of vaselli, which are small wooden casks; it identifies itself as clear, runny syrup. The wood of each cask bestows a different flavour: chestnut, rich in tannins contributes to the dark colour, mulberry concentrates the product more quickly, juniper gives resinous essences, and cherry sweetens the flavour, whilst oak gives the already matured vinegar a typical vanilla flavour.
The Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena PDO is the result of particular pedoclimatic conditions of the territory and the variety of grapes typically cultivated in the Modena region, together with the art of cooking the must and the meticulous annual procedure of decanting the vinegar from the bottles into different woods of decreasing volumes. Each wood bestows the vinegar with its particular aromatic characteristics.
