Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO with aging characteristics of over 12 years. Fully harmonious and mature flavour, intense and persistent aroma and high density.
Placed in the attics of houses, the barrels are subject to the summer heat and the winter cold; they are organised according to their capacity and made up of different woods: oak, mulberry, chestnut, cherry, sometimes juniper. Here the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena acidifies, matures, ages and achieves an equilibrium that only the preciousness of time and the experienced hand of man can produce. After a rigorous examination carried out by the Consortium of Producers of the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO - of which Ermes Malpighi is one of the founders - the guarantee seal with a serial number is applied directly onto each package. The Malpighi family is one of the most ancient that produces Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO (since 1850, they have arrived to the fifth generation); they now own 3000 barrels in which the TBVM matures and acidifies.
It was born as a digestive, to be consumed in small glasses at the end of a meal; over time it has found its space in the menus of great international chefs.
