This is the best entry point to the world of better-than-basic-balsamic we've found. Without a doubt, it's head and shoulders above the caramel colored, sugar sweetened factory-made stuff that's on the shelves in supermarkets.
Made just for us by the same folks that make the 8 and 10 year balsamic. (You'll see the density of 1.18g/cm³ on the bottle, but not the age of the vinegar because of some funny Italian laws.) It's ideal for everyday salad eating and any dish that could benefit from a splash of bright sweetness.
If you've bought this balsamic in the past, you may remember it having a tall, skinny bottle. Due to packaging shortages, it's in a different bottle this year (pictured), but is the same great stuff!
