Balsamic Vinegar that is nearly syrup.

Fresh sliced strawberries and a drizzle of VSQP.
…’incredible taste and palate.’ ‘flavor like balsamico should be’
‘how can this be vinegar? … its absolutely delicious’

From the family operated balsamico production of Villa Bellentini. Aceto Balsamico di Modena. VSQP Black Label – “Very Special Quality Product” (V.S.Q.P.) This balsamico vinegar, is mature and rich in flavor. Aged for a minimum of twelve years in small casks made of fine antique woods, some of which are centuries old. This aging process creates a dense pleasantly sweet syrup in which the flavors of the fruit and woods is discernable. The unique and delicate flavor make it a wonderful taste for oil and vinegar dressings or a treat which can be enjoyed on simple foods like ice cream or fresh strawberries.

Modena Villa Bellentini Aceto VSQP is syrupy sweet with only a hint of vinegar tartness. Aged gourmet balsamic vinegar is ideal in oil and vinegar recipes. This gourmet condiment is used as a dessert topping, drizzled over fresh fruits, ice creams or cakes. It is also popular to drizzle it over Parmesan cheese as a dessert too.

Each balsamic vinegar we offer has been taste tested. All balsamic vinegars offered on our site are of exceptional quality and taste and have passed our stringent taste requirements.
