Product Description
The Scrigno Wooden Gift Collection was created after the Giusti family received a request from Maestro Luciano Pavarotti in 2006. The Scrigno Collection was originally designed to be sold at a charity auction organized by Pavarotti’s Foundation.

A beautiful wooden case houses 10 bottles of balsamic vinegars. It features all 5 bottles of the Historical Collection in the classic “Champagnotta” format, along with 5 premium balsamic vinegars from the Piccole Donne Collection.

The Historical Collection
The Historical Collection is the most exemplary collection from the Giusti Acetaia. Each bottle features the first label, designed in the early 1900s. The bottles are in the “Champagnotta” style, which was also the bottle type that was originally used as it was the only one available to Giusti at the time. This collection includes 5 balsamic vinegars, created from different recipes and aging. They are named by the medals that the vinegars earned at International Fairs in the 19th century.

  • 1 Silver Medal, also known as Medaglia d’Argento, is aged in French oak barrels from the 1900s with the addition of aged balsamic vinegar from centuries-old casks. It is aromatic and enhances the flavors of dishes with its intensity.
  • 2 Gold Medals, Il Classico, is versatile and nicely balanced between the sweet and sour, with overtones of mature fruits, licorice, and black pepper. It is aged in oak barrels, with the addition of aged balsamic vinegar from centuries-old casks.
  • 3 Gold Medals, Riccardo Giusti, is created from sweet, sundried grapes which creates an aroma and flavor of plum jam and red fruits intertwined with hints of honey and vanilla.
  • 4 Gold Medals, Quarto Centenario, is a very full and aromatic balsamic vinegar with scents of ripe fruits, and notes of tobacco, roasted coffee, and wood. It is aged in a series of small antique casks that date back to the 1800s and is only extracted once a year in limited quantities.
  • 5 Gold Medals, Banda Rossa, is complex and features a rich bouquet of aromas. Notes of plum, black cherries, and sweet spice are infused with the fragrances of ancient woods as it is aged in a series of antique small casks, dating back to the 1700s. This vinegar is extracted in a limited quantity only once a year.

 

Piccole Donne Collection
These are a series of sweet, delicate, and considerably dense balsamic vinegars created in the local custom of bottling small quantities of a family production of balsamic vinegar. Each bottle is hand finished, sealed with raw rope and red wax, as is the tradition. They are aged in single wine barrels of oak, cherry, chestnut, mulberry, and ash with the addition of aged balsamic vinegar drawn from a series of centuries-old casks.
