Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia 12 Years by Cavalli
Grown on the hills of northern Italy, Trebbiano grapes are perfect for making quality balsamic vinegar. This traditional balsamic is taken from Trebbiano grape must. After being boiled over an open flame, the must is placed in wooden casks, filtered, and transformed into balsamico. These casks are stored in a vinegar loft (acataia), where for a minimum of 12 years, this balsamic vinegar matures until it reaches its peak. By law, this vinegar must be aged in wood casks of oak, cherry, mulberry, chestnut or juniper.

Cavalli's 12 Year DOP Balsamico has a strong, sweet fragrance, with thick, rich acidity, and an intense bouquet. Its plummy sweetness, cordovan color, and delicate balance render this Balsamic a leader in its category. The varied woods used for their casks each lend a particular aroma to the vinegar and makes it unique. Cavalli's DOP balsamico is splendid drizzled over savory and spicy cheeses, strawberries, cherries, pastry cream and ice cream. It also makes the perfect ending to a meal, sipped from a spoon or glass.

Cavalli Balsamic is produced by the Cavalli brothers, sons of Ferdinando Cavalli, the legendary founder of the Reggio Emilia Consortium. The Cavalli name and reputation assures the highest quality in Balsamics. Their special Tradizionale products are individually numbered on the glass and packed in beautiful Italian-made boxes. Each box includes a wax-sealed bottle, plus a 26 page booklet detailing its creation.
