Each label, yellow, orange and red, exhibits its own unique flavor profile and is recommended for different food pairings.
This variety has a classic and mildly pungent flavor. Pair with salad greens and vegetables for higher acidity and a clean taste.
This variety has been aged to a more full-bodied flavor and is best used in adding tang when cooking with roasted fish, vegetables or meats.
Il Borgo del Balsamico’s best-seller with a very soft and mild, yet complex flavor coming from its aging process in oak casts. Suggested pairings include cheese, fruit, ice cream, soft-boiled eggs, yogurt and vegetables.
A special thanks to Elio Altare, and his daughter Silvia Altare, who suggested we visit Il Borgo del Balsamico and learn from Cristina Crotti. This was our first balsamic comparative tasting and truly what a treat. We immediately knew we wanted to bring some home for the Keeper Chef to have in his ingredient bag, especially when we learned that it is not currently sold in the US. There are also recipes for food and cocktails that have been developed by chefs that love this product.
