Acetum I Legni Oakwood Balsamic Vinegar of Modena 8.45 oz
The selection I LEGNI is a tribute to a very important component of our production process: woods (in Italian, I LEGNI) used to make the barrels where Balsamic Vinegar of Modena matures. The wood strengthens the grape must acidification process, allows the correct maturation by the exchange between vinegar and oxygen, transmits his own essences to the product. For I LEGNI selection we wanted to enhance the features of each wood by maturing the vinegar in barrels made by that wood only. Oak Wood: is one of the most used woods for barrel construction. Its hardness, low porosity and the absence of predominant flavors, allow to slowly stabilize the features of vinegar during the maturation process, resulting into a strong and full body taste.
