The unique and traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena, Italy, is made from the
"must" (unfermented juice) of mainly the Trebbiano grape, other grapes
used are Lambrusco, Ancellotta, Sauvignon and Sgavetta. These "musts"
cannot have anything added. The must is then boiled down in open pots over a
direct flame. The extract (concentrated juice) from this cooking is now a fruity
syrup. At this point some "mother" of vinegar can be added. ("Mother"
is a stringy, slimy substance that forms on the surface of vinegar, composed
of various yeast and bacteria that cause fermentation in wine and cider, and
turn it into acetic acid - vinegar). It is then aged in barrels of different
woods - first in one, then transferred to another etc. Each company has its
own secret progression of wooden barrels usually including chestnut, ash tree,
cherry, mulberry, juniper and oak. The finished vinegar must be at least 12
years old, and some is aged much longer. The finished vinegar is then presented
to the DOC, a governing body similar to those that govern the quality of French
and Italian wines. Balsamic vinegars without this designation on the label are
usually unaged, aged for 6 months to a year in stainless steel tanks, or aged
for 2 to 12 years in wooden barrels.
