Condiment, “Riserva – Botte Segreta” 100 ml: obtained from the same line as the IGP products, it contains cooked must and wine vinegar as required by regulations but, aged in barrels made of different woods, it is ennobled to distinguish the precious sweet and sour organoleptic flavours enhanced in combination with boiled meats or mature cheeses or simply to enhance a simple appetiser or aperitif. Ideal with cooked vegetables, white and red meats both cooked and raw, but also grilled and on soft cheeses, a simple omelette, but we also recommend trying it on vanilla ice cream.
What are Condiments? Anything that does not comply with the PDO or PGI specifications for even one parameter of those regulations must be defined differently on the label, hence “Condiment” to distinguish the product commercially. They are usually obtained from the same production line as Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI or obtained from the same production line as the two PDO products, complete with the various aromas acquired in the passages from different wood barrels, to ensure the products have real and alternative balsamic aromas. The seasonings are used following what is already known and recommended for PGI and PDO products but, precisely the more or less evident and original flavourings they may express, can trigger interesting and diverse sensations on the palate so as to make them a valid alternative for those who like to appreciate, discover and diversify the pleasures of the dining table. The “Botte Segreta” condiment is different because it is obtained from the traditional balsamic vinegar production line.
