REALE 1-Year Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP “Classico” is a sweet-and-sour condiment made by the Leonardi family, who have 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 REALE 1-year Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP "Classico" is made of 30% cooked grape must and 70% wine vinegar. Like all other balsamic condiments, the more age it has, the more creamy and versatile in the kitchen it will be. Our expression is a true 100% natural vinegar aged a minimum of 1 year. The higher the content of grape must, the higher the quality. This perfectly balanced sweet-and-sour condiment is our base level Balsamic Vinegar to use in cooking and creating sauces, dressings or dips.

What about 100% Grape Must? Our 4-year 100% Balsamic Vinegar contains one ingredient- grapes! It has no wine vinegar added, so it is sweeter and richer. You can shop 4-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- 30% 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 for 60 days and contain only 20% grape must. Caramel coloring and other things can also be added. You get what you pay for!

This is a good entry-level Balsamic Vinegar for sauces, dressings, or dips. It will also complement cooked or raw vegetables and is an obvious choice for salads of all varieties!
