Acetaia Leonardi Balsamic Vinegar - Silver Seal, 250 ml
Acetaia Leonardi's Silver Seal Balsamic Vinegar is as thick as molasses, with a subtle acid finish and soft notes of cooked grapes. This balance will bring out the fresh sweetness of peach and plum desserts, make it a perfect pairing with olive oil, and become irresistible when drizzled over steak, chicken, pork chops, or vegetables.
Founded in 1871 in Magreta di Formigne, a few miles north of the town of Modena, Italy, the Acetaia Leonardi land is currently run by Giovanni Leonardi and his son, Francesco.
Four generations in, the Leonardi family is still making this celebrated condiment using traditional methods, such as cooking the Lambrusco and Trebbiano grape must in a copper cauldron and aging the vinegar in special wooden barrels.
In 2011, an old balsamic vinegar labeling method based on years of age was replaced with the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP (Protected Geographical Indication) guidelines. Under these new regulations, individual producers indentify the age and thickness of their vinegars according to a proprietary symbol. Acetaia Leonardi has chosen to use: One Coin and Red Seal (young), Two coins and Silver Seal (medium), Three Coins and Gold Seal (thick).
- Swirl it into butternut squash soup or creamy parmesan risotto
- Drizzle over a sizzling hot steak, braised pork chops or grilled vegetables
- Use in lieu of caramel or chocolate sauce over baked apples and pears
