Made with Italian raspberries, this unique balsamic is balanced by a touch of acidity and the subtle underlying sweetness of our balsamic base. This true-to-fruit raspberry flavor will complement pretty much any dish all-year-round.
If you have been stopping by Rockledge Gardens, you will know that we have been dropping this beautifully flavoured balsamic over samples of gelato and we are all loving it! We would also recommending drizzling it onto grilled chicken, pork or tuna and spashing it into smoothies. The possibilities seem endless so we continue to experiment.
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.
Pairs very well with the following infused olive oils available at Rockledge Gardens:
