You can practically taste the sweet, savory, and herbaceous flavors of a delightful Napolitano herb bouquet, just by smelling this balsamic. Neapolitan herbs such as rosemary, garlic, marjoram, thyme and sage, playfully mingle with our bright, fruity, and complex Traditional 18 Year Style Balsamic base.
Herbs di Napoli balsamic has the versatility to go from vinaigrette for simple salads, to marinades for meats and vegetables, to homemade chutneys for cheese and salumi plates, to tangy dessert sauces drizzled over poached pears or gelato. The essence of sunny Naples runs through and through, making it perfect for countless dishes.
At the base of our balsamics is a vinegar crafted in Modena, Italy by Aceto Varvello and inspired by rare lots of 18 Year Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia, our Traditional 18 Year dark balsamic has everything you would expect in a world-class balsamic: the perfect balance and structure of sweet and sour, notes of prune and caramel with a creamy texture that extends into a long finish.
This traditional balsamic base is made using an exceptionally high percentage of Italian Lambrusco, Sangiovese and Trebbiano grapes that are slowly cooked to create the highest quality grape must base. The resulting must is then combined with barrel aged Sangiovese wine vinegar to start the acetification process. The end result is the most premium example of an extremely high quality balsamic condimento that pairs well with almost every olive oil in our store.
Don’t forget to splash some on your next beef or pork steak! WOW!
