Made with grapes from vineyards of Emilia Romagna after a long period of aging in French oak barrels, this Anniversary Special Edition Campagnia del Montale Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP is rich, luscious, and sweet, with a velvety texture. Compagnia del Montale’s balsamic is made with no additional sugar or thickeners. However, due to its high percentage of concentrated cooked grape must, Special Edition Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP* has a thick body as well as a lower acidity level than regular balsamic vinegar.
Zeno and Burnesto love its exquisite balance of sweet and tart on roasted meats, grilled vegetables, grain salads, strawberries, peaches, and melons. Plus, you can use Campagnia del Montale Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP as an ingredient in your favorite salad dressing.
* IGP is PGI backward (Protected Geographical Indication). We don’t know why. Perhaps they wrote it down while looking in a mirror. Consider it part of Italy’s charm. Regardless of how you write it, IGP or PGI labeling from the European Union means that in order to say, “di Modena,” it actually has to come from Modena.
