Balsamic Vinegar dates back to 1046 when a silver barrel full was given to Emperor Enrico III of Franconia, as a gift. Balsamic is made from sweet grapes, traditionally Trebbiano, cooked slowly in copper cauldrons until the water content is reduced by over 50%. Then the grape “must” is transferred to wooden barrels for the aging process. Aging up to as much as 100 years, much like wine, is a serious undertaking, requiring meticulous care. As the grape must thickens and evaporate, the taste of balsamic vinegar intensifies.
