Etymology of balsamic vinegar

Balsamic vinegar has come from Italy, meaning "there is fragrance". You can feel not only enjoying the taste, but also enjoying the long-aged deep scent.

Production method of balsamic vinegar

Balsamic vinegar is made by crushing raw material grapes, processing them, putting them in wooden barrels and aging for a long period of time. It is rated by the maturation period, and the one aged over 25 years is called "Stra Vecchio", which is very precious and expensive. The taste changes according to the maturation period, it is a seasoning that can be enjoyed like wine.

What is the difference with wine vinegar?

The difference with wine vinegar is in its manufacturing method. Balsamic vinegar is kept in a wooden barrel for a long period of natural fermentation but wine vinegar is yeast added with alcohol fermentation and acetic acid bacteria also added to shorten the maturation period. The balsamic vinegar is more rich and tasty as much as it is for long-term maturation, but there are cases where the sense of wine vinegar's refreshing is suitable depending on the use of the dish, so many chefs use it properly.
