Guerzoni’s Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena (Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena) whose origins date back to the Este dukedom, is one of the nest and most renowned condiments in the world, so much so that it has recently been granted the much-coveted D.O.P. mark (denomination of protected origin). It is produced by ageing cooked grape must, acetied in casks which are all strictly of different sizes and woods. At Guerzoni, thanks to a system based on biodynamic principles, whereby each cask is associated with a particular planet in the solar system (Moon-cherry, Venusacacia,
Mercury-mulberry, Sun-ash, Mars-oak, Jupiter-maple or chestnut, Saturnjuniper or chestnut) our Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena benets from a unique period of ageing, lasting up to 24
years, which endows it with unmistakable properties and aromas.
Before being bottled, the vinegar undergoes stringent testing by the Tasting Commission of the Modena Chamber of Commerce, which assesses characteristics of density and acidity as well as organoleptic
properties. Only after passing these tests can the product boast the prestigious name “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena”. As an additional guarantee for consumers, the Modena Producers Consortium
actually bottles the product batch inside the Chamber of Commerce.
This Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena can be considered truly unique since, right from the beginning, the “Acetaia Guerzoni” vinegar loft has only ever used organic and biodynamic grapes.
This product is best savoured when used to enhance meat dishes, vegetables and cheese. Its characteristics are equally brought out by fruit
