Free Shipping on orders $50+!
REALE 12-Year Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP is a sweet-and-sour condiment made by the Leonardi family at Acetaia REALE. The Leonardi family has been making Balsamic Vinegar for 147 years with sheer artistry and craft. They use Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes that are grown on their estate in Italy. These grapes are cooked at a low temperature for 36 hours, and the concentrated cooked grape juice that results is called grape must.
How it's produced: The 12-Year REALE Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP is made of 90% cooked grape must and 10% wine vinegar. Like all other balsamic condiments, the more age it has, the more creamy and versatile in the kitchen it will be. With 12 years, this is a very special product. The higher the content of grape must, the higher the quality.
What about 100% Condimento Balsamico? Our 12-year 100% Balsamic Vinegar contains one ingredient- grapes! It has no wine vinegar added, so it is a bit less tart. You can shop 12-year REALE Condimento Balsamico 100% Balsamic Vinegar here.
Why is this more expensive than grocery store Balsamic Vinegar? When you taste REALE's products, you will immediately know the difference. The REALE Balsamic Vinegars DO NOT use caramel coloring or preservatives and contain a much higher percentage of grape must- 90% in this case. Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP is a name created in 2009 so that less expensive balsamic could be sold. These products, like what you see in the grocery store, can be made with grape must that is only aged in wood barrels and 60 days and contain only 20% grape must. Caramel coloring and other things can also be added. You get what you pay for!
