VIGNA ORO, Our all-time favorite and prized Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP won the prestigious Diamond Taste Award for its constant excellence.
This prestige award is granted only to products that have received the Superior Taste Award by deserving the maximum recognition of 3 stars 7 times. The judging process is managed by the International Taste Institute based in Brussels which is the world's leading organization dedicated to testing and promoting premium food and drink. Products are tested by large panels amongst more than 200 Chefs & Sommeliers from the most prestigious European culinary associations. Our exceptional product has received a total score of 91% thanks to its organoleptic qualities after a rigorous blind tasting based on 5 international criteria: first impression, vision, olfaction, taste, texture.
In particular, it is worth to mention that for its constant excellence VIGNA ORO won the prestigious “Crystal Taste Award” in 2014. This special award is granted only to those products that have been successfully tasted 3 years in a row by 3 different panels of judges.
Over the years, we have done a good job of obtaining this bitter-sweet delicacy and we will never stop improving. We will continue to make all of the tiny changes in everything that we do to get the greatness. Our secrets for obtaining such a prized product are: a careful selection of local raw materials, a long ageing inside cherry and oak barrels and a careful management of the entire production process.
