Our Modena PGI Balsamic Vinegar is thick, sweet, flavorful and barrel aged 12 to 18 years. It is PGI certified which means that it was made using the same methods, that date as far back as the 11th century in Emilia-Romagna Italy. These methods, commemorated in time and history are far superior to that of our mass produced counterparts and are among the finest of traditionally made balsamic vinegars. We handcraft not automate, making our products as much of an art form, as they are a delectable old world addition to any meal.
This all natural balsamic vinegar is available in traditional style or flavored with REAL freeze-dried fruits and spices. We do not use water and preservative laden juices, purees or extracts. Just limited ingredients and no added anything. We only use the best fresh whole freeze-dried fruits, which allows our flavors to retain their vital nutrition including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fragile enzymes. Freeze-drying not only provides optimal nutrition, but unmatched VIBRANT flavor as freeze-drying gives you concentrated fruit flavor and not just 85% or more water.
At The Golden Leaf we are the artisans who make our products and not in a crowded factory. A few skilled artisans versus a plethora of factory workers, enables us to provide unparalleled quality and nutrition, directly to the consumer. This accounts for the amazing and flavorful taste, as we can afford to add more fruit than water, to all of our balsamic vinegars. Easily add quality nutrition and flavor to every meal by drizzling a small amount of The Golden Leaf Balsamic Vinegar on your next meal, salad or side dish and taste the ‘Old World Simple’ difference.
Every step of the way, we make sure to provide superior quality, to ensure we provide a healthy, quality product. We add our ingredients through the brand new and superior method of vacuum blending. Normally, blending in fruit or vegetables would cause oxidation. When you leave an apple out and exposed, it turns brown. This is oxidation. Oxygen much like water, can not only cause fruit to rapidly expire without preservatives, but also neutralizes the antioxidant activity. As our fruits are freeze-dried, expiration is not a concern, but we did want to make sure our actual nutritional profile was not hampered by oxidation. Vacuum blending also provides a profoundly more fresh and flavorful taste.
For your pairing pleasure, we offer a variety of pure Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oils. The olives are hand picked and of the finest quality. The olive oil is then cold pressed and the fresh freeze dried whole fruits and REAL dried spices are added. From Meyer Lemon to Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Butter and Herbes de Provence; you are sure to find a flavor that meets your fancy.
Our extra virgin olive oil is a very flavorful, healthy option. The finest preferred Tonda Ilbea, Moresca and Nocellara Etnea olives are harvested just before they are ripe, to maximize both flavor and taste. Vital nutrients such as polyphenols, which are also rich in antioxidants, are maximized as well. Polyphenol rich, fresh olive oil has a distinctive peppery kick and is full of heart healthy Omega 3. Don’t settle for less, combine flavor and nutrition the next time you cook.
One very common problem that most flavored oils have, is that they lose their flavor very quickly over time. With going above and beyond by stuffing these gourmet Sicilian olives with REAL fruits and spices, it gets more flavorful with each passing day. That means you use less and taste more! This is true of all our products. Whether it is our finest collection of Sicilian olives or trebbiano grapes, we make sure that every flavor packs a punch!
