Vinegars and Glazes One of the great gastronomic treasures of Italy are Italian vinegars. Their depth of flavor enlivens a variety of foods.A good Italian vinaigrette should be well-balanced in terms of its acidity. The ratio is typically 3 parts extra virgin olive oil to 1 part vinegar. Start with the vinegar, add some coarse salt and a pinch of sugar. Then add the oil and whisk briskly. Fresh chopped herbs should be added just before you serve the dish.
In the pantheon of Italian food products one type of vinegar stands above all others, Aceto Balsamico from Modena. Aged in former wine barrels of French Allier oak, this 6 year balsamic has an extraordinary density, aroma and depth of flavor with a clean delicate finish. Made from Lambrusco and Trebbiano grape varietals it is often mistaken for a 10,12 or even a 15 year old balsamic. An exceptional product that contradicts its age and modest price.
