Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP 25 Yr by La T
What really can be said about a $700 bottle of vinegar? The price says it all. Only 20 to 30 bottles of this "Gusto Eccellente" top quality 25 year aged Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP are made by La T each year. It comes from its own dedicated set of "secular barrels" that were originally put in place to serve the needs of the family. Made from the knowledge inherited from their parents, grandparents and ancestors, today Acetaia La Tradizione continues to follow the traditions of the past with the same love and the same passion.

Created by a harmonious cooperation between nature and humans, this world famous DOP (protected) elixir, by DOP law, can only be made from the musts pressed from local Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes. The must is cooked on direct fire in open vessels until it achieves the optimum level of sugar concentration, then cooled and fermented in large steel containers.

After fermentation, the product is transferred into large wooden aging barrels that contain "Mother" to begin the process of acidification. These large wooden aging barrels are actually the first in a "battery", a series of seven barrels, which as a whole make up a production unit. Each barrel down the battery has a smaller capacity than the one before it. Here the product is left to mature for at least 25 years. Of course, the terms "25 years" is used as a simple placeholder to describe the complex aging of this unique product.

As it comes time to transfer the Balsamico from one cask in the battery to the next, only half is transferred. The finished product is bottled from the final cask. Because only half is removed, the final cask technically contains some Balsamico that dates back to the year the battery was first put in place.

Artfully packaged in a cream-colored Italian gift box, send the ultimate gourmet gift to a very lucky recipient, or treat yourself to something extremely precious previously reserved for royalty.
