On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we break into the batteria (a series of barrels in descending size, and different woods) of Mariangela Montanari, a REAL balsamic vinegar maker from Modena (Italy), the land of fast cars, and slow food. At La Ca’ Dal Non, her acetaia (vinegar brewery), balsamico tradizionale DOP has been produced for generations, but it’s only in the past 50 years that it’s been shared outside of the family. Luckily, 100 ml bottles of “black gold” are now imported in by Gustiamo, allowing us to taste, and truly experience, the history of balsamic vinegar.
