Consorzio Tutela Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP

Is an association formed with the mission to protect product quality and market image not only of the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, but also of the entire cultural heritage of the Modena traditions.


With a full, bright dark-brown color, the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena has the right level of runny, syrupy density. Its bouquet is fragrant and complex yet well blended, sharp and persistent, with a noticeable but pleasant and harmonious acidity. Its characteristic flavor is a well-balanced sweet and sour, with an appreciable acidity that can be described as alive, fresh, full bodied, velvety, intense and persistent, in good harmony with its peculiar olfactory properties.
