Product Description

Torino is known throughout Italy for its high quality chocolate and coffee. Aceto Varvello blends high quality cocoa (whole ingredient) with our Traditional 18 Year Style dark balsamic to create our newest incarnation of Chocolate Balsamic. The flavour is enormous, and similar to wine, you will notice sophisticated mid-notes and a long finish that one would expect from high quality chocolate. This vinegar’s fruity and prune-like centre notes pair perfectly and infuse the chocolate flavour into your favourite recipes. Use for marinating meats such as slow cooked pulled pork, braised meats or as a replacement for sugar in your favourite baked goods. Pair this balsamic with Chipotle olive oil to make a perfect Mole sauce, or mix with Blood Orange olive oil or with extra virgin olive oil oil to make a delicious marinade. Your cheese plates and gelato will love this one of a kind vinegar. Did we mention it is to die for in Chocolate Martinis?

Olive Oil Pairings: ​Chipotle, ​ Italian Lemon, Blood Orange, Mexican Spice, Roasted Walnut, Butternut Squash Seed, Cayenne, Medium EVOO

Complements: ​ Marinades for Beef, Pork and Poultry, Mexican Mole, BBQ Sauces, Winter Greens, Fresh Fruit, Pastries, Desserts and Martinis

Ideas:
● Combine with any spicy infused olive oil for a Mexican mole or marinade for beef, pork, and poultry

Notes​: Expect sediment from chocolate during tasting. This adds to the overall customer experience and the idea of whole-ingredient vinegars. Occasionally, chocolate rings will float to top of filled bottle, covering neck due to the fat content in real chocolate.​ We use the lowest fat content cocoa powder available. This is normal and a simple spoon or straw will loosen sediment. Shake well and enjoy.

Allergens​: Contains naturally occurring sulfites.

  1. Denise Sutherland

    Love this on top of plain yogurt for a treat without the guilt.

  2. Rachel

    One of the employees recommended brushing the Torino Chocolate Balsamic on freshly baked goods, so I tried it on Banana Oatmeal Muffins hot out of the oven – AMAZING!!!! It caramelized with the heat and gave such an interesting depth of flavour.

    • Denise Tucker

      Thanks Rachel – This is one of our favourites also – I personally use it on Spinach Salad as the dressing. So Decadent!
