Aged at least 12 years in series of ancient casks, made of different types of woods, according to the ancient “ìrefilling and decanting” system, the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena DOP Affinato is made only with cooked must of local grapes. It is considered as a symbol of an ancient modenese art that has been handed down for generations over centuries.

  • AGING: The aging of Giusti Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena takes place in ancient wooden barrels from the family heritage used for decades or centuries. The aging period is at least 12 years for the Affinato type, following the Traditional Method of Transferring and Refilling in a battery of barrels made from different woods. Moreover, the age of the barrels and the liquid they contain, never being completely emptied, greatly affect the flavor and consistency of the final product.
  • STORAGE: The product is stored at room temperature, even after opening. Due to its high natural sugar concentration, sediment may form over time at the bottom of the bottle. This residue is the result of a natural crystallization of sugars, which typically occurs when the product is exposed to cooler than usual temperatures. To restore the product and achieve the original consistency, it is sufficient to warm it moderately.
  • EXPIRATION: This product is exempt by law from the obligation to indicate an expiration date. It is not subject to spoilage, even after opening.
  • DIETARY RESTRICTIONS: This product is gluten-free and contains no animal ingredients. It is made with non-genetically modified raw materials and the only allergen it contains is sulfites.
