Aged Balsamic Vinegar from San Giacomo
The nose of this medium-thick condimento balsamic vinegar opens both sweet and tart, with notes of molasses and hints of fruit. Sweet and fruity on the tip of the tongue, a pleasant amount of acid creates an interplay of sweet and sour on the mid-palate that is a sheer pleasure. This delicious condimento leaves one with the impression that the balance of sweet and sour leans slightly to the sweet.
This type of balsamic is used as a finishing flavor rather than mixing it into a salad dressing. Only a couple of drops are enough to really get the flavor. Great swirled into olive oil for dipping bread or crudite, and amazing just drizzled on a microgreen salad or cooked meal.
