The Products

The balsamic vinegar of Modena is perhaps one of the oldest and most characteristic ingredients of Modenese cuisine. Its enormous success throughout the world can be attributed to the fact that it can be used as a condiment in practically any type of cooking. Its sweet-sour taste makes it equally suitable for hors d’oeuvres, main course dishes and desserts ; its rich fragrance can be used to enhance countless dishes without masking their flavour. It is made according to an exact recipe and rigorous procedure which, in the Carandini family, have been handed down from generation to generation. The basic ingredients of balsamic vinegar are wine vinegar and grape must, which are mixed in exact proportions. The mixture is mellowed in barrels made of various types of wood and undergoes a strictly controlled decanting process to give the vinegar its unique taste and fragrance.
