The Balsamic vinegar is a sweet-and-sour condiment, fascinating and rich in history. In the past times it was mainly considered precious for its therapeutic properties and nowadays it is a very versatile ingredient in the kitchen. The traditional ageing process in wood barrels provides a gradual thickness to the product, this is why a young balsamic is more suitable to dress salads and prepare sauces or marinades whereas an older balsamic, thicker and sweeter, will match perfectly with cheeses, meat and seafood up to eventually going well on fruit, ice-cream and even as an after-dinner for its digestive effects.
