The Black Gold of Modena

Made from Treb¬≠biano grapes bar¬≠rel aged for 15 years, Lodovi¬≠co Cam¬≠pari Bal¬≠sam¬≠ic Vine¬≠gar is an Ace¬≠to Bal¬≠sam¬≠i¬≠co Di Mod¬≠e¬≠na IGP and is one of the most adored bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gars from Mod¬≠e¬≠na, Italy. Thick and intense¬≠ly fla¬≠vor¬≠ful, this bal¬≠sam¬≠ic mar¬≠velous¬≠ly pairs with both savory and sweet dish¬≠es alike.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A PGI condi¬≠ment from Italy known as the cr√®me de la cr√®me of Ital¬≠ian vine¬≠gars, Lodovi¬≠co Cam¬≠pari Bal¬≠sam¬≠ic Vine¬≠gar Aged 15 Years is a lux¬≠u¬≠ri¬≠ous and rich bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar, vel¬≠vety smooth in tex¬≠ture with a glo¬≠ri¬≠ous dance of sweet¬≠ness and acid¬≠i¬≠ty on your palate.

Rich, glossy, and dark brown, the aro¬≠ma of this bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar is sweet and pun¬≠gent, with a del¬≠i¬≠cate, acidic bite. An ele¬≠gant, medi¬≠um-bod¬≠ied bal¬≠sam¬≠ic, Lodovi¬≠co Cam¬≠pari Bal¬≠sam¬≠ic Vine¬≠gar Aged 15 Years is sweet in its acid¬≠i¬≠ty, with hints of choco¬≠late, figs and toast¬≠ed malt that beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly enhances an array of savoury and sweet dish¬≠es alike.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Per¬≠fect as a com¬≠pli¬≠ment to an array of meat, fish, veg¬≠eta¬≠bles and a great addi¬≠tion to cheese plates and char¬≠cu¬≠terie, this is deca¬≠dent with a pan seared Ernest Soulard Foie Gras with bal¬≠sam¬≠ic reduc¬≠tion. If you‚Äôd want to opt for some¬≠thing lighter, the sweet acid¬≠i¬≠ty of this aged bal¬≠sam¬≠ic also adds a com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty of flavour in a Bur¬≠ra¬≠ta sal¬≠ad. Pre¬≠pare a sal¬≠ad of sweet cher¬≠ry toma¬≠toes and arugu¬≠la, top with fresh Bur¬≠rati¬≠na cheese, sea¬≠soned with olive oil, Lodovi¬≠co Cam¬≠pari Bal¬≠sam¬≠ic Vine¬≠gar and fresh¬≠ly cracked pepper.

For those seek¬≠ing a more adven¬≠tur¬≠ous treat, driz¬≠zle this bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar like choco¬≠late syrup over straw¬≠ber¬≠ries and vanil¬≠la ice cream.

THE BIRTH­PLACE OF BAL­SAM­IC VINEGAR

This pre¬≠cious bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar aris¬≠es from Lodovi¬≠co Campari‚Äôs pas¬≠sion for Mod¬≠e¬≠na, the birth¬≠place of the thou¬≠sand-year old tra¬≠di¬≠tion of bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar. To be iden¬≠ti¬≠fied as a an Ace¬≠to Bal¬≠sam¬≠i¬≠co Di Mod¬≠e¬≠na IGP (Bal¬≠sam¬≠ic Vine¬≠gar of Mod¬≠e¬≠na IGP), the bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar must be made with Treb¬≠biano vine¬≠yard grapes, picked at their peak ripeness, then cooked and left to reduce on open top ves¬≠sels. The sub¬≠se¬≠quent ‚Äč‚Äúgrape must‚ÄĚ is then aged in bat¬≠te¬≠rias, (a set of pro¬≠gres¬≠sive¬≠ly small¬≠er bar¬≠rels made only of IGP approved wood casks such as oak, cher¬≠ry, chest¬≠nut, mul¬≠ber¬≠ry, a cacia, juniper, and ash), draw¬≠ing the dis¬≠tinc¬≠tive and unmis¬≠tak¬≠able aro¬≠mas of the dif¬≠fer¬≠ent wood¬≠en bar¬≠rels for a span of 15 years, or in the case of some bal¬≠sam¬≠ics, even up to 150 years.

The result¬≠ing vine¬≠gar is beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly rich, with a vel¬≠vety tex¬≠ture and a mag¬≠nif¬≠i¬≠cent con¬≠trast of sweet¬≠ness and acid¬≠i¬≠ty that makes Campari‚Äôs Aged Bal¬≠sam¬≠ic Vine¬≠gar tru¬≠ly a jew¬≠el of Modena.
