Whole Foods in Bay Area carrying La Piana Aged Balsamic Vinegars

Italian Foods Corporation’s imported La Piana® balsamic vinegars of Modena now are available in greater San Francisco area Whole Foods Markets.

The Whole Foods Markets are now carrying the La Piana Bronze Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and Gold Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena through Italfoods, Inc., of San Francisco, according to Francesca Lapiana-Krause, Italian Foods general manager.

The vinegars are imported from the Modena region of Italy and made from the juice of Trebbiano grapes grown in the region. These produce a rich, sweet and pleasantly acidic balsamic vinegar with intense, but well-rounded, flavor, Lapiana-Krause said. La Piana Bronze Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena has a density of 1.18 and a sugar level of 400 to 430 grams per liter. The Gold balsamic vinegar has a density of 1.32 with sugar at 750 grams.
