Our Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is thick, sweet, flavorful and barrel aged to perfection with a subtle nutty oak finish. Aged until it is a viscous glaze, you can use it as a glaze or marinade on chicken, steak, salmon or pork. Liven a drab vegetable dish by adding tender juicy flavor to asparagus or brussels sprouts. Or simply drizzle it over a tossed salad and it will stick to the spinach or arugula leaves; creating a perfectly proportioned salad in every bite! This balsamic vinegar is delicious atop almost anything with its lightly sweet, nutty oak taste!
This pure balsamic vinegar is flavored with all natural, simple and limited ingredients.
