Do they contain any allergens?

Modena Balsamic Vinegar PGI may contain sulphites. If so, this will be indicated on the label.

Generally these are not sulphites added during production; their presence is due to the main ingredients that make up the product: wine vinegar and cooked or concentrated must.

In the Traditional Reggio Emilia Balsamic Vinegar PDO, meanwhile, a small quantity of non-added sulphites is common. These are substances produced during the fermentation of the cooked must by naturally-occurring yeast in the grapes.

The regulations for the production of the two vinegar standards, PGI (‘Protected Geographical Indication’) and PDO (Protected Designation of Origin’) and the strict controls their production has to undergo guarantee their authenticity. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you check the label carefully for the yellow and blue PGI or the yellow and red PDObranding to be sure that you have purchased a product where the quality is guaranteed.

What should I combine Modena Balsamic Vinegar PGI with?

Just a few drops of this black gold produce an enveloping aroma and a taste that is sweet and sour in equal measures. This makes an ideal addition to salads, raw vegetables and grilled meat. Discover our recipes.

Our Cream is gluten-free!

Ferrarini’s passion and proven experience has given rise to this new product based on Modena Balsamic Vinegar PGI. It has an extremely delicately balanced sweet and sour flavour.

Innovative and versatile, this product is GLUTEN-FREE and, thanks to its viscosity, allows you to fully express your flair as a chef with refined decorations that will add the finishing touches to any dish.

What does “aged” mean?

It means the product has undergone an ageing period of three years or more.

Why is caramel colouring used?

In Traditional Reggio Emilia Balsamic Vinegar PDO nothing can be added to the simple cooked must, so caramel colouring cannot be included in the ingredients.

For the Modena Balsamic Vinegar PGI, meanwhile, the same regulations state that caramel colouring can be added in very small quantities (up to 2% of the total amount) “for colour stability”; in other words, it provides the typical brown colour in products that have been aged for less time. All producers are bound by this law and, when caramel colouring is used in production, it is always listed among the ingredients used.

What does PDO mean?

PDO stands for Protected Designation of Origin’, which for the Traditional Reggio Emilia Balsamic Vinegar refers to a condiment made from grape must that comes from various types of vineyards found in the Reggio Emilia region. It can be distinguished by its dark, clear and glossy colour. The flavour is sweet and sour and expertly blended, and has an appreciable level of acidity and aroma.

In order to assess the suitability of a product, a commission formed of five tasters drawn from a register filed at the Reggio Emilia Chamber of Commerce tastes random samples of the product and judges their characteristics.

The production of this exceptional condiment is restricted to the province of Reggio Emilia in the Emilia Romagna region.
