Free Shipping on orders $75+!
REALE Condimenti are REAL, 100% Balsamic Vinegar! There is just ONE ingredient – grapes. 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. The grapes are cooked at a low temperature for 36 hours, and the concentrated cooked grape juice that results is called grape must.
The acidity is around 5% so it is sweeter than Aceto Balsamic vinegar because it has no wine vinegar! The more it is aged, the more it gets thick and sweet. REALE balsamic condiments are coloring free and 100% natural, made of one ingredient only: cooked grape juice (concentrated must), acetified through alcoholic fermentation and aged in wood barrels, with annual transfer into different wood barrels to acquire the flavors of each wood. The typical woods used are the same as for the DOP Traditional Balsamic Vinegar: oak, chestnut, cherry, ash, mulberry, and acacia. Balsamic condiments may be flavored, and they can be packed in any bottle size.
This 16 year old Balsamic Vinegar is a year older than the Extravecchio and is one-third of the price.
