Acetaia Leonardi 5 Year La Corte Balsamic Condiment
Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, Aged for at Least 5 Years
In Modena—the birthplace of balsamico—Giovanni Leonardi is as famous as Enzo Ferrari or Luciano Pavarotti. For four generations, the Leonardi family has been making this highly prized elixir using traditional methods like cooking the Lambrusco and Trebbiano grape must in a copper cauldron and using special wooden barrels for aging. The result is a perfectly balanced “black liquid gold” worthy of the name balsamico.
How to use
Acetaia Leonardi's La Corte Balsamic Condiment is rich and supple with deep notes of sun-sweet raisins, dried cherries and an almost toffee-like finish. Its subtle tang makes it ideal for finishing both sweet and savory foods—drizzle over chunks of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, use as a garnish for flame-kissed steaks or add as a final flourish over vanilla-scented panna cotta.
La Corte Balsamic Condiment is the ideal mate for whatever fruit is in season. Drizzle over strawberries in the spring, brush over grilled stone fruit in the summer, pour over roasted apples (and a scoop of vanilla ice cream!) in the fall and use as a condiment for poached pears come winter.
