Fontana FORMIELLO Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is made in Modena, Emilia Romagna, in the centre of Italy.

PREPARATION
Blend with extra virgin olive oil in a salad dressing or drizzle directly over grilled or braised meats and vegetables.

COOKING TIPS
  • Add a splash of balsamic vinegar to soups and sauces at the very end of cooking to bring the flavours together.
  • Use a little balsamic vinegar as part of the liquid in a braise to give the whole dish a deep, rich, slightly sweet flavour.
  • Throw a cup of balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan with some sugar, add a stick of cinnamon and let it reduce until syrupy. Chill before drizzling over a scoop of vanilla ice cream or strawberries.
  • Use balsamic vinegar with sliced shallots and a dollop of mustard to marinate steaks and other read meats, but tofu and large portabella mushrooms.
COOKING IDEAS
Brush balsamic vinegar of Modena over roasting chicken or duck breasts, shake some over grilled tuna steaks, drizzle over tomato salads, stir a little into a roast vegetable pasta sauce or through a risotto or even give it a whirl in a dessert.



STORAGE
Store closed in a cool dark place, away from heat source and direct sunlight. Any cloudiness or sediment does not affect the quality of the vinegar. This is a sign of our natural production method.

*****
Authentic, Italian and delicious. This is an authentic Italian balsamic vinegar, contains less salt than most expensive brands out there and most importantly contains NO preservatives or other nasty chemicals. I'm really impressed and I'll definitely buy this again. Highly recommend.
