Giusti 100-year Grande Vecchio Grade Traditional Balsamic Vinegar – Giving you a taste of luxury with every drop.
The “Riserve” is the most exclusive of the Giusti collection, produced each year in extremely limited quantities. They are extracted from some precious series of barrels, which have been in production since 1700’s. In keeping with this precious production, the case is composed of the 5 types of woods that make up a typical series of barrels; the front label is engraved in 24-carat gold, while the back label is made with the ancient technique of letterpress printing, using a classic lead character font of Modena from the 19th century.
Using only the ripest Lambrusco or Trebbiano grapes and aged to perfection in wooden casks, Giusti’s Balsamic Vinegars are like a small taste of pure perfection drizzled onto your favorite foods.
