This is a fabulous, special edition ‘perfume’ bottle of the much-loved red label balsamic vinegar by Borgo, Reggio Emilia.
An authentic aged balsamic vinegar from Reggio Emilia. The Red Label from Borgo del Balsamico is our best seller and best loved. Part of a set of 3 balsamic condiments (together with the yellow and orange labels) the red label is aged for a minimum of 6 years* and is the most exclusive of the 3. (Please read our article below on balsamic vinegars below and avoid the tricks some sellers use).
Produced with the same loving care as the traditional DOP balsamic vinegars, the cooked must from local Trebbiano grapes are left to age in French oak barrels where it very slowly reduces and refines. It has a sublime sweetness with a perfectly balanced acidity, huge depth of flavour and a lovely natural density.
It is one of those unique products that gets everybody in agreement on how incredible it tastes. For sheer elegance and class, it is on a par with some of the most expensive traditional DOP balsamic vinegars at a fraction of the price.
It combines perfectly with uncooked dishes, fruit, desserts, mature cheeses and ice cream. A little goes a long way!
Available in this attractive 100ml bottle and the beautiful 250ml gift box package. Perfect for the discerning foodie and anyone looking for a true, quality balsamic vinegar.
*Sellers will often claim e.g. aged for 8 years. This is often a blend of very young vinegars with a little 8 year old added. Always check the minimum aging.
