Alessi White Balsamic Vinegar
Balsamic Vinegar is an Italian condiment that has been made in Modena and Reggio Emilia since at least 1046. It is made from the pressings of white Trebbiano grapes that were never allowed to ferment into wine. The concentrated juice of these grapes is then cooked down to what we know as Balsamic Vinegar.
Not only Alessi does offer regular Balsamic Vinegar, but we also offer the rare White Balsamic Vinegar. The dark red color of traditional Balsamic Vinegar has a tendency to overtake and dominate more delicate dishes. So Alessi came up with the idea of White Balsamic Vinegar. It is not cooked as long so that it doesn’t get as dark as the traditional.
