This must is left to age in wooden barrels for decades.

The grapes are carefully cultivated and selected by the producers, following strict production regulations. Producers limit the cultivation and production area to the Modena and province only.

The second category of Balsamic Vinegar is the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).
PGI vinegar can be composed no longer of a single ingredient but by three different ones: cooked must, wine vinegar and caramel (maximum 2%).
