Ponti Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (Review)

Ponti vinegar

Balsamic vinegar is a dark-colored, velvety-textured, and complex-flavored vinegar made from grape must, the freshly crushed grape juice with all the skins, seeds, and stems.

Thanks to its agrodolce (sweet and sour) taste, it’s one of the best vinegar varieties for dressing salads, brightening up grilled or sautéed vegetables, as well as marinating or glazing meat, poultry, and seafood.

Originating from Italy, balsamic vinegar is traditionally made only in the cities of Modena, population 184,727 (2017), and Reggio Emilia, 171,491 (2017), in the northern Emilia-Romagna region.
