Compagnia di Volpaia Italian Aged White Wine Vinegar, 8.45 fl. oz
Produced in the cellars of a medieval fortified village in the Chianti hill of Tuscany. Castello di Volpaia Aged White Wine Vinegar is extracted from carefully selected wines of the region by the traditional "truciolo" method. The wines are percolated through chips (trucioli) of oak and chestnut, transforming the natural alcohol of the wine into the acetic acid of vinegar while enhancing the wine' s complex bouquet. Aceto di Volpaia reaches its full maturity only after long, slow barrique-ageing in small oak and chestnut barrels. The result is an intensely aromatic vinegar of exceptional roundness, with a rich flavor that enhances foods from salads to meats, to strawberries and mangoes. A little sediment in the bottom of the bottle is a natural byproduct of the process and will not detract from the qualities of the vinegar.
