Villa Manodori balsamicos are produced in very small quantities by Massimo Bottura, chef and owner of Osteria Francescana restaurant in Modena. Villa Manodori Artigianale is crafted from the must of locally grown trebbiano grapes and aged red wine vinegar. It is matured for 10 to 20+ years in small barrels of oak, chestnut and juniper woods, yielding a balsamic of dark rich color, intense aroma and syrupy consistency. It incredibly intensifies the flavors of 22 month Grana Padano and grilled meats, yet is still sweet enough to drizzle over strawberries or ice cream. This exquisite specialty item ships in a beautiful white gift box.
