The “Consorzio Tutela Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP” has launched the campaign “Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, the Original” co-financed by the EU, to promote the added value of the product in terms of authenticity, safety, traceability, and labeling, guaranteed by the European trademark protection and to enhance the competitiveness of Union agrifood products in the United States. www.originalbalsamicvinegar.eu.
Cooks can trust that they’re using high-quality balsamic vinegar when they see the PGI seal protected by this consortium of over 50 companies, and our chefs are eagerly innovating with the iconic product and choosing protected products over counterfeit and deceptive ones. Bitter sweet with a distinct aroma, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is regulated for authentic origin, production and quality control to ensure the balanced composition it’s become known for. The Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is slightly acetic and has a delicate aroma, persistent, with woody overtones.
