ACETO BALSAMICO DI MODENA IGP
ORGANIC BALSAMIC VINEGAR OF MODENA
“Along the banks of the River Secchia, which divides the district of Modena from that of Reggio Emilia, the millenary tradition of balsamic vinegar has widely spread. Near Modena, in the town of “Magreta di Formigine”, in a XIX-century court, the Leonardi family founded a Vinegar Farm (Acetaia) and created the Leonardi Balsamic Vinegar. Over the years, the family has poured incredible devotion, respect and unwavering passion into the making of this precious “black gold”, handing down family secrets and time-honoured traditions through four generations. This sublime Balsamic Vinegar of Modena has a complex and penetrating, yet harmonious and pleasant flavour. Incredible on mixed salads, raw or cooked vegetables, roast or grilled meats, omelettes, cheeses, salami, ham, or even fresh fruit... simply sublime!” John Kirwan
