Francesca Di Monte Vinegars
Francesca di Monte® genuine balsamic vinegars of Modena are produced by one of Northern Italy’s outstanding, small-production and family-owned balsamic vinegar makers. Balsamic vinegar is the delicious combination of Italian Trebbiano red wine vinegar and Trebbiano grape must, fresh grape juice aged in barrels of various types of wood over long periods of time. The thick, syrupy must is transferred from barrel-to-barrel until it becomes deeply rich in flavor, and, after years of slow evaporation in the barrel, thick in consistency. The Francesca di Monte Collection includes a variety of balsamics, at Gourmet House Market we offer the premium Invecchiato (15 years), rich, flavorful and packed in a distinctive gift box.
