Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale

Only two consortia produce true Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale, Modena and neighboring Reggio Emilia. Both of these Italian traditional balsamic vinegars are contained in legally-approved shaped bottles.

 

The names "Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena" (Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena) and "Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia" (Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia) are protected by both the Italian Denominazione di origine protetta and the European Union's Protected Designation of Origin.

 

Modena designates the different ages of their balsamic vinegars (Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena) by cap colour. A white-coloured cap means the vinegar has aged for at least 12 years and a gold cap bearing the designation extravecchio (extra-old) shows the vinegar has aged for 25 years or more.

 

Reggio Emilia uses a different system to indicate the age of its balsamic vinegars (Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia). A red label means the vinegar has been aged for at least 12 years, a silver label that the vinegar has aged for at least 18 years, and a gold label designates that the vinegar has aged for 25 years or more.
