GIUSEPPE II D.O.P ACETO BALSAMICO TRADIZIONALE
Established in 1862, Acetaia Pedroni is one of the oldest artisan balsamic vinegar producers in the world. Six generations later, their Tradizionale Balsamic Vinegar has won best Balsamic Vinegar in Modena. Acclaimed critic Ruth Reichl proclaimed that she had found "the perfect balsamic vinegar" with Pedroni.
Their Giuseppe II vinegar is from the Pedroni family's aged Tradizionale D.O.P offerings, which must undergo a stringent inspection and bottling process by the Consortium of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. This vinegar undergoes a long refining period in oak and chestnut wood barrels for over 25 years. Harmonious and “Extravecchio” (Extra Old), this vinegar will make any creation special. Plain buttered rice, cured meats, king prawns, Parmigiano Reggiano … a gourmand’s vinegar.
The Pedroni family in particular takes great pride in being one of the oldest artisan balsamic vinegar producers in Modena (and the world!). Established in 1862, the Pedroni’s storied taverna and acetaia have persevered through six generations, and their bottura are now over a hundred years old. The family cultivates plots of Trebbiano di Spagna and Ruggine grape (white grapes) to produce the extraordinary cooked must that goes into the creation of their award-winning vinegar.
Today, Pedroni’s Traditional Balsamic Vinegar has won best Balsamic Vinegar in Modena; it is “the perfect balsamic vinegar” and “ultimate indulgence” according to Ruth Reichl.
We are thrilled to carry two vinegars from their I.G.P Balsamic Vinegar of Modena range, in addition to four exceedingly rare and special varieties from their aged Tradizionale D.O.P offerings, which must undergo a stringent inspection and bottling process by the Consortium of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
