Usually ready in 24 hours
This Opera Balsamic Condiment is aged 15 years and has a lovely, naturally creamy consistency and deep raisin flavor. As a Balsamic Condiment it has a lower acidity than the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena IGP, since it is made of acetified cooked grape must only, exclusively aged in wooden barrels made of different woods, each wood providing its typical scents and aromas to the products. The Balsamic condiments are similar to the DOP Traditional Balsamic Vinegar but without the DOP regulation. They are all free from any colourings and preservatives; 100% natural. Their creamy, natural thickness and complex, sweet flavor pairs well with many dishes, from appetizers to desserts.
Acetaia Leonardi has been producing balsamic vinegar since the mid-19th century. They source all their grapes from their own vineyards and control every step in producing their balsamic vinegar. Grapes are picked by hand and gently pressed to prevent bitterness and the process of transforming the cooked grape juice, or grape must, into aged vinegar has been passed down from father to son for generations. Ponte Vecchio is an exclusive label by Leonardi for Zia Pia, and offers a wide range of balsamic vinegars, from classic vinegars for everyday use to 25 year aged balsamic vinegar for the most special occasions.
