Mandarano Balsamic of Modena – The legendary taste of Modena.
A "battery" is a series of five barrels used in the aging of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Our Acetaia uses different wood essences for each barrel resulting in the final complexity of taste and aroma notes of our Balsamics.
Cherry lends a sweet note, Chestnut gives the vinegar its dark-rich color., Mulberry thickens the vinegar as it ages, Juniper enhances the taste elements, and Oak gives it a distinct and memorable aroma.
A proprietary blend of eight varieties of grapes grown in the Modena area give our Balsamic its discernible and unique taste. All grapes are grown insecticide free and sustainably farmed.
The art, skill and science is in the timing and blending of all the elements of the aging process.
With over 120 years of trial, error, passion and commitment our Acetaia has mastered the art of bringing out the rich, well-balanced, harmonious flavor of the Balsamic.
