Balsamic Vinegars

When it comes to balsamic vinegars, the more they are aged, the greater the depth of richness and that uniquely sweet-tart flavor. La Piana balsamic vinegars are made from Trebbiano grapes grown in the Modena, Italy, area, which is renowned for its traditional methods of slowly cooking the grape juice and allowing the vinegar’s character to develop by aging it in wooden casks. The longer the vinegar is aged, the denser (thicker), sweeter, and more aromatic it becomes with a pleasant acidity that produces a well-rounded intense flavor. Balsamic vinegars may be distinguished by their densities, which are measured as the ratio between the weight of 1 liter of the vinegar and 1 liter of water, and the sugar level per liter.
