The Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI is a very complex product, a skilful blend of different ingredients that vary according to quality, quantity and period of aging. Adding more or less vinegar or must, using cooked or concentrated must, as well as selecting barrels and vats of different sizes, greatly varies the taste, density, colour and costs.
To simplify this choice, Antica Modena has decided to join the Leaf System created by AIB (the Italian Balsamic Tasters), an independent association that has developed an objective, independent and widespread method for evaluating the characteristics of the various Balsamic Vinegars from Modena. It involves four categories represented by an increasing number of leaves, from one leaf, the most basic quality, to the four leaves, indicating the highest quality.
