Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia
Balsamic vinegar has a history of more than 900 years rooted in the Emilian territory.
In 2000, the European Community has included the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia in the prestigious list of products with a Protected Denomination of Origin label.
All the goodness of this P.D.O. label product is guaranteed by the Consortium for the Protection of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia. Based on the results of the tasting, Traditional Balsamic Vinegar is classified into three categories: Oro, Argento and Aragosta .
Oro, Argento and Aragosta, correspond to the colours of the stickers (gold, silver and burnt orange) applied to the typical little bottles of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia. These identify the different product types and the different periods of aging, anyway always longer than 12 years.
Traditional Balsamic Vinegar stickers ARGENTO
Product awarded the silver-coloured Argento sticker has generally been aged for 6/7 years longer than those with the Aragosta burnt orange coloured sticker; thus it’s more concentrated, which attenuates the perception of acidity, offering a pleasant, complex sensation on the palate.
This balsamic vinegar is ideal as a condiment, as well as for almost all first and second course dishes.
The rich, intense aroma, which tends pleasingly towards a sweet fragrance, is delicious paired with mayonnaise and sauces, or as an accompaniment to boiled meats or fish dishes, as well as pasta and rice salads or foie gras. Also ideal with spicy and mature cheeses, especially Parmigiano Reggiano.
Served hot, it gives a special taste to fillet of beef, and is excellent for helping risotto dishes to reach a creamy texture, especially with vegetables or scampi.
Vinegar Factory Ferretti Corradini
Back in 1918, in keeping with a long-established family tradition, Luigi Ferretti’s father gave him a small barrel of balsamic vinegar dated 1890. After twenty years in Argentina, Luigi returns to Reggio Emilia and in the attic of a typical residence of the emilian town makes the family Vinegar. Luigi’s first-born son Libero followed his father’s footsteps, acquiring expert knowledge over the years and becoming an excellent wine-taster.
After his father Luigi died, Libero developed the father’s business producing the vinegar. In just a few years, he has became a key figure for everyone in the area: now he is a promoter of the birth of the Consortium for the Protection of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Reggio Emilia and one of the top official tasters of the “Confraternita dell’Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale”.
Libero’s invaluable legacy was taken up by his daughter Lucia, who, in the hamlet of Bagno together with her husband Giuseppe, continues with commitment the family tradition.
Now Valeria, daughter of Lucia and Giuseppe, with her husband Valerio lead the family Vinegar, combining tradition and innovation with a modern company that still remains close to its roots.
