Vecchia Dispensa's Sweet 16 Year Aged Balsamic

Zingerman's exclusive balsamic.

Working just off the historic square in the center of the old town of Castelvetro, southwest of Modena, Italy, Roberta Pelloni and her husband Marino Tintori make a range of great vinegars. Although Americans tend to gravitate toward sweet caramel-flavored balsamics, Marino is quick to emphasize that “the key to great Balsamico is balance.” Exaggerating sweetness is an easy way to enhance appeal and reduce the need for proper blending and aging. You might not notice it at first, but after many uses, overly sweet balsamics get kind of dull. Not so with those from the Tintoris. We've been selling them for over a decade, and they have a legion of followers who return to them again and again.

This one is made just for us. Blended to capture the woody, earthy intensity of our 10 year aged balsamic and rounded out with a dose of lush sweetness, the kind you'll find in older bottles. This one is 16 years old, ready for the debutante ball. (You won't see the age of the vinegar on the bottle because of some funny Italian laws, just the vinegar's density.) Don't miss it.
