Traditional DOP Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia Silver Stamp (Bollino Argento)
In Reggio Emilia, it is said that in ancient times, Saint Prosper once coaxed a blanket of fog over the city, concealing it from barbarian armies and saving it from a terrible fate. Fog became a precious ally and similarly, the inclement seasons of the valley became essential for our traditional balsamic vinegar, its remarkable flavour and limpid purity.
