NOLA Blends source for our 12 "Riserva" Dark Balsamic Vinegar recipe extends back to 1889 in Italy. Surrounded by rural farmland and filled with a passion for the Earth’s bounty, the recipe continues under the watchful, third generation eye. Prepared using ancient, traditional procedures, its process begins with carefully hand-selected Lambrusco and Trebbiano grapes, which are ideal for a quality product. The grapes are pressed, and the resulting juice (called “must”) is heated in copper cauldrons until the volume is reduced through evaporation to about 40% of the original weight. The liquid is then decanted into wooden barrels (chestnut, oak, juniper, and cherry) and left to age where it transforms into vinegar. As time elapses, part of the liquid evaporates and the other part of the liquid is absorbed into the wood. This is called “rincalzo” (which happens in the period of grape harvest). The liquid is transferred into smaller barrels while the new “must” is added to “top off” the bigger barrel. And, so continues the process.

Tasting Note:

Dark as night with a heavenly thick consistency and a sweet, pungent taste that delights your olfactory senses and taste.
