Our hugely popular dark balsamic, Estilo “Affinato” di Modena dark balsamic vinegar condimento, has the highest density of any vinegar we carry at Barrie Olive Oil. Made from the highest quality Trebbiano grape must, this product is super thick and complex, layering flavour throughout. Boasting a 1.36 density and 5% acidity, the vinegar possesses a balance of sweet and sour with perfect harmony and texture. At tastings, we have only experienced the words “wow” and “incredible”. Notes of plum, honey and cherry make this vinegar exceptionally appealing and unique. With no thickeners or additives, this product is meant to compete with “25-star” vinegar but at a new level of excellence.
