Made with Barrel-Aged Balsamic and fig flavoring this Fig Balsamic Vinegar is a perennial favorite that exhibits great harmony with its rich and full flavors. One of our best selling balsamic vinegars. Our Fig Balsamic Vinegar is made for us by one of the most renowned makers of Balsamic Vinegar in Italy. It is made in Modena, Italy using traditional methods. First quality grape must, which is obtained from whole pressed grapes from locally grown late-harvested varietals, particularly Trebbiano and Lambrusco, is reduced by roughly half and left to ferment naturally for up to three weeks. The resulting concentrated grape must is then blended with a small amount of premium aged wine vinegar to balance the acidity and matured and further concentrated for a minimum of 18 months in Slavonia Oak casks. Fig flavoring is then added to the resulting Balsamic which has a glossy and viscous dark brown color, with beautiful orange reflections. It has a velvety texture and a slight fruity sweetness, balanced 4.5% acidity and mellow oak undertones.

This fig balsamic is truly the best! It’s thick and has a deep and complex flavor. It doesn’t really need olive oil with it to make a great salad dressing. I have been using it for years. I prefer it to any other option. I do add a small amount of high quality EVOO, but it’s not required. This fig balsamic stands on its own. Try it on a piece of fresh crusty bread. It’s incredible.

I love this as a stand alone salad dressing. So thick and delicious straight out of the bottle. Should I refrigerate it after opening?
