Do not confuse a Vincotto Vinegar with a Balsamic Vinegar. They look very similar, but they are not the same. Their use can be the same, but the flavor is different. A Vincotto has nuances of prunes, spices and heady grape components.
Vincotto Vinegar or Aceto di Vincotto is less woody than a balsamic; it is a velvety liquid made by cooking and reducing the grape must from two distinct grape varietals, Malvasia and Negroamaro from the Puglia region in Southern Italy
The reduction time is approx. 15 hours and then this Aged Vincotto spents 6 years in oak barrels, allowing the taste and consistency to develop. Use Vincotto Vinegar for flavoring meat, fish and vegetables and it is exceptional as a vinaigrette.
Ingredients:Cooked grape must, vinegar
