About the maker:
The Gocce vinegar farm started its activities in the 18th century, but from the mid-19th century it has specialized in the production of balsamic vinegar, using its own raw materials. In fact, the farm is surrounded by 10 hectares of vineyards, mainly with the grape varieties Trebbiano (white grape) and Lambrusco (red grape). It is a closed loop farm because all production steps take place in the same factory.
The balsamic vinegar is a very unique seasoning, produced in limited quantities because it is linked to the geographical areas of Modena and Reggio Emilia. In fact, it seems that the particular climate of this region, with high thermal shocks between the very hot summer and the cold winter, allows the grape must to ferment and ripen under the best conditions according to traditional methods. This tradition is passed on by the Leonardi family, who repeat the same production cycle of their balsamic vinegar year after year, creating an emotion always renewed.
Just a few drops are sufficient in desserts, with strawberries and/or ice cream. With beautiful cheeses, meats, over risotto. Also on a teaspoon as a digestif.
