Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar Modena

Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar Modena

Customer favorite is now in a new larger size!  Our Barrel Aged Balsamic from Modena, Italy is a wonderful blend of Balsamics aged up to 12 years. Having been aged in series of wooden casks gives this Balsamic vinegar its sought after richness. Our Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar is handcrafted from Trebbiano grapes and created using traditional artisan methods. This results in the Balsamic having a dark color, sweet yet tart flavor and thickness; which is characteristic of a true Balsamico. We love to use our Barrel Aged Balsamic in salads, drizzled over steak or poultry or even on vanilla ice cream. You can also drizzle it over steamed asparagus or use in stir fry to create zero-fat dishes.   375 ML

 The following is a recipe using the Balsamic vinegar to create a wonderful sauce with portabella mushrooms. We like to serve this over creamy polenta in the winter or a crisp salad in the summer.

 Barrel Aged Balsamic Porabella Mushrooms

  • 4-5 Cups Thick sliced Portabella Mushrooms
  • 3 Tablespoons Toasted Onion Avocado Oil
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • ¼ Cup Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar
  • ¼ cup Sliced sun-dried tomatoes
  • Fresh Basil leaves for garnish

Make the Mushrooms:

Heat a frying pan over medium heat.
Add the oil and wait until it's heated through. Add the garlic and mushrooms and stir for about two minutes. Add the tomatoes. Drizzle the barrel aged Balsamic vinegar over the mushrooms until the mushrooms are completely covered. Keep stirring until the mushrooms are cooked. (approximately 5 minutes) They will release their juices and a thick sauce will form over the mushrooms. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top with basil. Serve Hot.


What makes Balsamic Vinegar so special?

 Balsamic Vinegar comes from the most simple sugar and vinegar fermentation of cooked grape must but the real secret lies in the aging process which is carried out in sets of different wooden barrels over a long period of time. This is why we have named our Balsamic vinegar “barrel aged”.

The refining of the bouquet; which grows ever more intense, delicate and pleasant to smell and taste, is the most complex and delicate phase and this is where the experience of the master vinegar maker is essential.

While the acetification process of ordinary vinegar is based on wine, the production of the precious aged Balsamic vinegar is based on cooked trebbiano grape must. The classical tradition has it that the production is made in small wooden barrels arranged in sets of no less than three.  The three production phases are: alcoholic fermentation, acetic oxidation and aging.

The most common woods used for the barrels are oak, chestnut, mulberry, cherry, ash and juniper. Each one lends a particular aroma to the vinegar and makes it unique.

Barrel Aged Balsamic Vinegar can be used neat to dress salads and crudities, on flakes of aged cheese, to liven up mayonnaise, creams, pastas. It marries perfectly with all red meats, with game or with white meats.

  1. Best Balsamic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2018

    I first tried this balsamic years ago and was immediately hooked. It is far superior to every other balsamic I have tried -- except for other Culinariam balsamic vinegars which also are extraordinary. I routinely give this as hostess and holiday gifts, as well.

  2. Outstanding 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2016

    We bought one bottle of this balsamic on a trip up the Oregon coast. It is superb on a salad or drizzled over berries. We loved it so much that when we got home we ordered a case of it.
    Now I've given so much of it away to my friends that I just ordered another case. You will love it.

  3. Unlike any other…. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2015

    This vinegar has such a lovely, bold flavor. I don't like sharp vinegars and this one has a sweet experience. It is unusual in that way. It is rich and you need a splash for a summer or winter salad. I ran out without noticing there were no back ups…panic! All is good, though.

  4. INCREDIBLY Delicious!!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2014

    My first experience was a gift bottle of this product. This time I purchased 2 bottles just so there was no chance I would run out. I have purchased many Aged Balsamic Vinegars but none like this product. I use it on salads with just a few drops of high quality olive oil, wonderful. Also good for dipping, glaze on fish or veggies. A little goes a long ways.
