Villa Manodori Extra Vecchio (Gold Seal) Traditional Balsamic


Villa Manodori is a collection in which Chef Massimo Bottura, chef and owner of Osteria Francescana restaurant in Modena, has applied his creative skills to an assortment of authentically-crafted balsamic vinegars and extra virgin olive oils. Produced in limited quantities, these versatile condiments are enjoyed throughout the world.

Villa Manodori's Tradizionale Balsamic of Modena is Extra Vecchio (Gold Seal). It is submitted to the Consortium of Modena only after being aged at least 25 years. The traditional aging process results in a rich, complex sweet-sharp flavor with a nuanced woody aroma. Strong enough for savory food yet rich enough to drizzle over fruit and ice cream. Try using several drops of balsamico as the finish on a dish of risotto. Try dipping shards of Italian hard cheeses like Parmigiano Reggiano in a small pool of vinegar. Drizzle this fabulous balsamic vinegar on grilled asparagus or potatoes. It takes just a few drops to finish a caprese salad. Each bottle of Villa Manodori Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale Di Modena is packaged in a Consortium glass bottle that bears the Consortium Seal, to signify authenticity, alongside Villa Manodori's logo. Three star *** Michelin Chef Massimo Bottura's booklet of recipes is also included. 100ml 

Villa Manodori also produces an Artiginale Balsamic Vinegar and a Dark Cherry Artiginale Balsamic Vinegar
