Gran Riserva 'Special Reserve' Aged Balsamic (2 pack)

Gran Riserva 'Special Reserve' Aged Balsamic
  • Save 13%

Our Gran Riserva 'Special Reserve' Aged Balsamic Vinegar is absolutely stunning. If you're looking for a glaze or a thicker balsamic, our intense, rich & naturally sweet 'Gran Riserva' is the one for you!

Home of the World's finest balsamic vinegars, our Gran Riserva 'Special Reserve'is grown & aged in Modena for years in barrels until just the right balance of sweetness is attained.

It's also a GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNER too!

This is what the judges had to say about it:

  • There is some power to the aroma of this vinegar. The flavour opens with a hint of burnt sugar followed by fruitiness that builds. 
  • Glossy, with good consistency.
  • Real caramel/molasses notes to the flavour with the expected depth and length of notes. Complex sweetness and a lovely balance of acidity.
  • A dark & rich balsamic with a good consistency and beautiful sheen.
  • The ageing has done its work; there is a touch of acetic and a warmth of sweetness.

The key differences between our stunning, authentic aged balsamic vinegars compared with cheaper imitations are:

  • WE DON'T use watery, thin balsamic vinegar; ours are thick enough to use as a glaze but with NO artificial sweeteners or thickeners.
  • WE DON'T do 'reductions'- cheaper vinegars that have been boiled to reduce them (sometimes even with sugar) & make them thicker.
  • WE DON'T add a grain of sugar, caramel (E150) or sweeteners anywhere in the process - all the sweetness comes from the passing of time & from the fruit itself. 

This is unlike any 'supermarket balsamic' or cheap, watery vinegars made with 40-50% sugar. This also means it's ‘free’ on all the slimming plans we know of!

You'll only need a few drops to give a real richness to anything. Use as your 'go-to' balsamic: dress a salad, dip chunks of crusty bread into it, drizzle a few drops on any veggies (especially tomatoes, sautéed greens or asparagus), meats or gravies & sauces. Try a few drops over game, lamb or steak as you serve. A few drops will add richness & depth to any Bolognese, stew or tomato-based pasta sauce.

It works on a cheese board too, especially harder cheeses like parmesanor pecorino. A few drops on strawberries with a grind of black pepper is sublime, trust us!

Shelf life: 9-10 years

Available to buy in a 2 pack. If you prefer you can select one of our other balsamics for the 2nd bottle.
