Description

The dukes of the d'Este family were famous throughout Europe for their precious "l'aceto del duca" - what later became known as Aceto Balsamico di Modena. It was so highly treasured that it was given as gifts to kings and emperors. The exquisite "Oro" or Gold balsamic vinegar by Modena Estense is a descendant of this original. The fine 100% extra virgin olive oil by Modena Estense confirms why olive oil has also been known for some time as the liquid gold of Italy. The mild scent of freshly cut grass underlines its excellent quality.

Since the organic extra virgin olive oil and the Aceto Balsamico di Modena Gold by Modena Estense go so well together, we decided to offer them together as a set.

What makes the "Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP ORO" by Modena Estense so special?
The "Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP ORO" is full-bodied and velvety in texture and exudes an intense, balsamic aroma. Due to the special maturation process in wooden barrels, it gains a unique taste that is balanced and bittersweet. It is the perfect complement to fillets and fine cheese and also with strawberries or sorbets.

This balsamic vinegar stands out due to the high proportion of grape must and Aceto Invecchiato (the wine vinegar used has been matured in wooden barrels made of precious wood for at least 10 years). The "Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP ORO" contains approx. 75% concentrated grape must and 25% wine vinegar. Since it is obtained through a process of natural concentration, no precise proportions can be given.

The designation IGP (indicazione geografica protetta), called PGI in English (protected geographical indication), indicates that it is a product typical of a specific region with certain special characteristics and that at least one phase of the production process has taken place in the region. A certifying authority ensures that all the requirements are met. Any product labelled "Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP" must be produced in the province of Modena and Reggio Emilia. The grape must may only be obtained from the following grape varieties: Lambruschi, Sangiovese, Trebbiani, Albana, Ancellotta, Fortana, Montuni. Maturation and ageing take place in containers/barrels made of precious wood for at least 60 days after production has been completed. Only vinegar that has been stored and matured in wooden barrels for at least 3 years can be labelled "invecchiato". The addition of any other ingredient is not allowed.

What makes the 100% organic extra virgin olive oil from Italy by Modena Estense so special?
Delicious flavour, excellent quality and a gentle production process that is gentle on both the olive and the environment - these are the characteristics that make this oil so special.

Modena Estense's organic olive oil is obtained from cold-pressed olives in Italy. The mild scent of freshly cut grass makes this an excellent dressing for salads. The refined taste also goes very well with fish and meat dishes.

Serving Suggestion: Surprise your family and friends with a delicious appetiser at the next get-together. Serve fresh crusty bread such as baguette with a bowl of this exquisite olive oil seasoned with a pinch of sea salt as a dip. An absolute delight!
