REALE 16 year Riserva Balsamic Vinegar is the finest Balsamic Vinegar money can buy. Produced by the Leonardi family for 147 years, this product – once tasted – is unforgettable. Using the same methods that have been employed for generations, the Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes are hand picked. Then they are cooked at a low temperature for 36 hours to produce grape must. The must is then transferred to a large wooden barrel that contains the balsamic starter – like sourdough bread. Six different woods are used – oak, chestnut, cherry, mulberry, juniper and ash; and each year the contents is moved to a smaller barrel, made from one of the woods. Each year the Balsamic Vinegar becomes sweeter and thicker. After 16 years, this product is then bottled, the top is sealed with a red wax and placed in a beautiful wooden box complete with its own glass tasting instrument. This is a gift that a person never forgets. This special edition is 250ml of pure pleasure.
It is ideal in soups, on pasta, risotto, cooked vegetables, smoked salmon, grilled or roasted meats, French fries, cheese, ice cream, yogurt, fruit, or dark chocolate.
