Acetaia Alico: Balsamics, Modena

We have selected from Alico the Villa Estense line of beautiful bottles of different balsamic vinegars from Modena in northeastern Italy. Writing the age of the balsamic on the label is illegal in Modena and this practice is now supplanted by indicating the density of the balsamic which is actually a much more informative way to define the differences from one balsamic to another. A higher density means that there is a larger concentration of reduced grape must added to the wine vinegar.

Alico balsamics are produced exclusively within the provinces of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and enjoy the benefits of an IGP denomination, a certification that ensures the Geographic Origin of these balsamics. See below for a detailed description of each of the four types we have decided to import.
