Argento Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia, the silver sealed balsamic vinegar, made by San Giacomo. The golden, silver and red seals signify grading levels for these vinegars; silver being more concentrated than the red, aragosta label and softens the sensation of acidity, giving it a sweet and sour taste that is gorgeous as it is complex, making it perfect for use straight out of the bottle uncooked, but also with almost any first or second course.
The seal colors specify quality rather than age and the silver seal is minimally 6-7 years older than the Aragosta (red) version, thus around 20-25 years. The grades given by the Consortium are a guarantee of a minimum level of quality, required to be allowed to use the nomination D.O.P. (Denominazione di Origine Protetta europea). San Giacomo is a proud producer of these high quality balsamic vinegars.
