Il Borgo Balsamic Vinegar
Il Borgo’s “L’aceto Balsamico Tradizionale” or traditional balsamic vinegar is extracted from casks where it has matured for at least 12 years. Expert tasters then decide on the vinegar’s ranking according to two different categories – Affinato (aged) or Extravecchio. Featured here is the 25-year-old traditional balsamic vinegar, a deep and syrupy indulgence that made waves in Singapore through the “La Cortina” pasta dish at Preludio, a fine dining establishment by Chef Fernando Arevalo.
The 100ml Il Borgo L’aceto Balsamic Tradizionale (25 years) is available for purchase at Preludio, 182 Cecil Street, #03-01/02, Frasers Tower, Singapore
