Classic Italian Balsamic Syrup from Modena
Balsamic Glaze from Acetaia Leonardi is made from concentrated grape must blended with aged balsamic vinegar resulting in a sweet and sour balsamic syrup with rich, caramelized notes, a raisiny aroma and sweet tang. It’s thick, pourable consistency and easy-to-use squeeze bottle make it ideal for drizzling over your favorite dishes. Add a bright pop of balsamic to desserts like a simple strawberry tart, vanilla ice cream or creamy panna cotta. Or on the savory side, brush over seared duck breast before serving, drizzle over roasted carrots or pair with Italian cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano, Dolcelatte Gorgonzola and La Tur.
About the Producer:
There are over 300 producers of balsamic vinegar in Modena, but the Leonardi family is truly special. They have been making balsamic vinegar since 1871 and are still one of the few producers to own the land where the grapes grow. Four generations in, the Leonardi family is still making this prized elixir using traditional methods, such as cooking the Lambrusco and Trebbiano grape must in a copper cauldron and aging the vinegar in specific kinds of wooden barrels. The result is a perfectly balanced vinegar worthy of the name balsamico.
