This special vinegar is made by the oldest balsamic maker in the world Giuseppe Giusti. Dedicated to the ancestor who created the recipe at the beginning of the 20th century, this balsamic is obtained from sweet, sundried grapes. The aromas and flavors of plum jam and red fruits intertwine with hints of honey and vanilla in a considerably dense and sweet balsamic. It is perfect as a fresh dressing for various savory or sweet dishes.
This vinegar is our favorite for salad dressings, glazing meats, dipping bread into and turning into a sauce. This vinegar has a medium viscosity with a powerful balance of acidity with just a touch of sweetness.
