Why does it deserve our mention?  Because it is an elegant combination of tradition and originality.  The sisters Silvia and Cristina Crotti, with the same passion and respect with which they produce the traditional balsamic vinegar with DO Reggio Emilia, make this gastronomic condiment that, although it isn’t protected by a designation of origin, is nonetheless a gastronomic marvel of the highest quality.  They only use grapes from the Reggio Emilia region.  The acidification and concentration are achieved through the evaporation of the grape must during the years of aging in oak barrels.  A recommendation from the Crotti sisters: try it alone, with a spoon, maybe even at dessert, so that you can fully taste it.  And they are not wrong, we promise you that. Aged for six years and very, very nice density.
