Pleasantly acetic, persistent, delicate with wooden notes odour. Sweet, characteristic, well balanced flavour. The grape must and vinegars begin their acidification process and are then stored in barrels made of various kinds of wood for their indispensable maturing and aging process. During this period of time, the vinegar absorbs from the woods, the typical bouquet of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. The longer the vinegar is aged, the more complex it becomes.
Since the rules of the Consorzio of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena allow only a limited number of bottles a year to bear the Seal of Quality, many of the traditional producers bottle a limited amount of balsamico under the Condimento Balsamico category and label. This means that the product has not undergone the scrutiny nor the very limited quota of the Traditional consortium and therefore, reflects the quality standards of the Leonardi family.
Syrupy as a chocolate sauce. Shades of brown with bright mirror refflections. Aromas of grapes, apples and caramel with a well-balanced hint of wild flower honey and maple syrup. Rich and vibrant on the tongue with a sudden lively finish. Sweet and sour in the front of the mouth and in the back with evolving caramel flavors, raisins and fresh cherries.
Very few producers (if any) can have a batteria made entirely of precious cherry wood. Ciliegio (cherry) is a limited-number bottling from a 20-year travassi barrel of a batteria made entirely of cherry-wood barrels. Do you remember the smell of a freshly baked cherry pie? That is the first image that comes to mind along with freshly picked amarene (sour cherries). Sweet, clean and very aromatic.
Very few producers (if any) can have a batteria made entirely of ancient juniper wood. Ginepro (juniper) is a limited-number bottling from a 20-year travassi barrel of a batteria made entirely of juniper-wood barrels. Do you remember the smell when you used to sharpen your pencils? That is the first image that comes to mind along with opening a drawer or a closet made of old cedar wood. Clean, polished, so aromatic it brings back childhood memories.
