Only our vinegar is certified organic and biodynamic (Demeter)
Guerzoni’s Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena extravecchio (Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena extraold) is a superlative dressing, fruit of old tradition of the Estense dynasty, which obtained one of the most important alimentary certification: the D.O.P. mark (denomination of protected origin). This Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena extraold can be considered truly unique since, right from the beginning, the “Acetaia Guerzoni” vinegar loft has only ever used organic and biodynamic grapes.
It is produced by ageing cooked grape must, acetified in casks which are all strictly of different sizes and woods. The Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena extraold benefits from a unique period of ageing, lasting more than 25 years.
Before being bottled, the vinegar undergoes stringent testing by the Tasting Commission of the Modena Chamber of Commerce, which assesses characteristics of density and acidity as well as organoleptic properties. Only after passing these tests can the product boast the prestigious name “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena extravecchio”. As an additional guarantee for consumers, the Modena Producers Consortium actually bottles the product batch inside the Chamber of Commerce.
