Castello di Volpaia Red Wine Vinegar
Castello di Volpaia’s red wine vinegar, made in a medieval village in Tuscany, is a complex, well-rounded product that is rich and full-bodied but still bright. Winemaker creates the vinegar from the same grapes used in the region’s famed Chianti Classico wine, balancing earthy Sangiovese with the mellow berry flavor of Cannaiolo. The company’s traditional truciolo method, which gradually percolates red wine through oak and chestnut shavings, allows the vinegar to retain aroma and pick up spiced notes, resulting in one of the most vibrant and flavorful vinegars we have ever tried.
The gutsy flavor of this red wine vinegar is best blended into dressings for bold greens, like arugula or radicchio; splashed into tomato sauces to round out the sweetness; or added at the end of beef stews and braises to cut the richness.
