Wine of the Month - turned to vinegar!!

>> Sunday, May 02, 2010

This month’s ….balsamic vinegar by Åsa:
”Extravecchio” from Villa San Donnino, Modena, Emilia Romagna

It is hard to believe that so much taste can come from a single small drop. The balsamic vinegar from Villa San Donnino is syrupy and it has been aged for more than 25 years. It would almost be sufficient with half a drop to fill the mouth with warm, full flavours and the refreshing acidity on the finish that makes the taste linger for a long time. It is dark brown with some red tinges. the price is high, if you only look at the price tag. But if you look at the work that’s gone into creating it, and the taste of the result, it’s worth every cent. This is a real taste experience and if you are look for aromas the balsamic vinegar from Villa San Donnino is a hot tip. A suggestion is to put a drop on a matured chunk of parmesan cheese or on a grilled piece of meat just before serving. Can also be used for deserts – ice-cream or strawberries for example. Price for 100 ml: 80 euro.
