The "Gold Reserve": the ultimate privilege.

Very limited availability.

Not many producers can offer a Condimento Balsamico from a batteria which has been in the family since 1871. Giovanni Leonardi has safe-guarded this precious sets of barrels from which he selects a limited amount of liquid black gold for a lucky few.

Since the rules of the Consorzio of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena would not grant this product any singularity compared to an Extra Vecchio, the Leonardi family decided to bottle it with a Condimento Balsamico label in order to reflect its uniqueness and express its impressive barrel selection on the label.

Dense and viscous as a thick syrup when poured. Dark brown with impressive black undertones and a stunning bright surface which shines like a mirror. Shiny mahogany in the middle and sparkling black around the edges. The perfume is penetrating and layered with floral and dried fruit essences. In the mouth it is velvety, slick, almost oily, like a liqueur. Harmoniously sweet and tart at the same time, with a singular flavor of caramel, concentrated raisins, black currant, dried figs, dates, and cherries and the brightness which is so characteristic of a perfectly made Balsamic vinegar.

Amazing bright finish. Stunning.

To be had by the spoonful as an aperitif before the meal or as a digestif at the end of the meal. This is definitely a balsamic to enjoy in its purest form, or over a perfect piece of grilled filet or steak. There is nothing like it.
