Description

Balsamic Vinegar is a condiment originating from Italy and precisely from the village of SPILAMBERTO (home to VILLA MODENA), in the province of Modena.

Balsamic has been known since the Middle Ages but it’s origin is still shrouded in mystery : the locals in Spilamberto claim that it originated from a “mistake” : a parcel of cooked grape must, (unfermented grape juice), was left forgotten in a wooden barrel for a long period of time and when it was found again a natural acidification process occurred and the product was deliciously dense , bitter and sweet. The word balsamico means “balsam–like” in the sense of “restorative” or “curative” because this has always been considered as a healthy condiment.
