The 3 gold medals vinegar is a sweeter balsamic, ideal for desserts. This vinegar has been aged for approximately 12 years. Made from sweet, sun dried grapes, the vinegar is rich with plum jam, red fruit and vanilla flavours and aromas. The 3 gold medal vinegar has a slightly thicker texture, and works well as a marinade.
The 4 gold medals balsamic is aged in a series of antique small casks, and is extracted once a year. The balsamic is aged for around 15 years and is deeply aromatic, with notes of ripe fruit, tobacco and roasted coffee.
Finally, the 5 gold medal balsamic vinegar. This vinegar is the ultimate pride of the Giusti family, and was first produced as a personal gift from Uncle Giuseppe to family members. The balsamic is robust, and sets itself apart from other vinegars with its complexity. Notes of plum, black cherries and sweet spices and infused with ancient wood aromas.The vinegar is aged in small antique casks (which date back in the 1700s) for around 20 years, and this vinegar is extracted only once a year.
Each of the vinegars is presented in a champagne-style bottle, and a smart wooden box.
Since 1605, the Giusti family has been producing Italy’s oldest balsamic vinegar, following a family recipe that’s remained the same since the start. With a focus on respect for tradition and a sustainable approach to production, the Giusti family has created some of the best-loved balsamics, not only in Italy, but across the world.
Based in the Modena countryside, Giusti still to this day age their balsamic vinegars in original casks, adding historic flavour characteristics to every bottle.
