Giusti Exclusive Reserve - Balsamic Vinegar from Modena 100 years
Price per box (100ml)
Excellence, extracted after 1 century from the barrel which Pietro giust chose to take to the Parisian Exposition Universelle in 1889, earning the Giusti Family yet another Gold Medal. The result is a super balsamic vinegar, with extraordinary body and an extensive bouquet of aromas and flavours that range from cherry, cocoa, honey, vanilla and licorice in a crescendo of olfactory sensations.
The “Riserva” are the most exclusive of the Giusti collection and is produced each year in extremely limited quantities, extracted from some precious series of barrels in production since 1700. One of these barrels, coded as A3, was brought by Giusti to the National Fair of Florence in 1861, where a “vinegar of 90 years” was awarded a gold medal, successfully repeated at the Expo in Paris in 1889.
In keeping with this precious production, the case is composed of the 5 types of woods that make up a typical series of barrels; the front label is engraved in 24-carat gold, while the back label is made with the ancient technique of letterpress printing, using a classic lead character font of Modena from the 19th century.
Some drops to complete a recipe. Ideal in combination with Parmigiano Reggiano, grilled fish, strawberries, vanilla ice creams. It can be tasted alone, in drops, on a ceramic spoon.
