PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Unlike ordinary vinegar which has its origins in an alcoholic liquid, balsamic vinegar is produced directly from grape juice, also known as must (non-fermented grape juice). The liquid is boiled in an open vat over a fire, and then placed in high quality wooden barrels in which through an oxidation process, it is transformed into vinegar. The barrels are kept in a vinegar loft (acetaia) where over a number of years the liquid matures by a slow process of natural fermentation followed by progressive concentration by aging in a series of casks made from different types of wood and without the addition of any other spices or flavorings.

Two types of vinegars based on the aging periods are marketed: the Affinato which is aged for a minimum of 12 years, and the Extra Vecchioaged for a minimum of 25 years.
