La Vecchia Dispensa's Organic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP has a full, well-rounded flavor and classic oak notes, with an initial burst of bright acidity followed by a rich sweetness similar to dried fruit. The Tintori and Pelloni families have been producing balsamic for four generations, originally only serving it at the small restaurant they opened in the 1970s. Their vinegar was so popular, however, that the family soon began selling it to customers. We love its rich, syrupy consistency and balance between acidic and sweet. This product has a Protected Geographic Indication by the European Union to recognize its authenticity.
Blend this balsamic vinegar into dressings or sauces, or drizzle over roasted meats and vegetables; we especially like to splash it on sliced tomatoes and greens. It’s also wonderful for balancing out the rich flavors in cheesy risottos or creamy pastas, as well as our Fig, Blue Cheese and Prosciutto Pizza
. On the sweet side, drizzle over sliced strawberries, or make an Italian-style roasted pear dessert: Quarter and core pears, then brush liberally with melted butter and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Roast at 500°F until caramelized, about 15 minutes. Drizzle with balsamic and serve with vanilla ice cream or lightly sweetened whipped cream.
