The Three Protected Balsamic Vinegars
Ok, we aren't going to bore you with all of the geeky vinegar knowledge of the world but we'd love to share a cool little fact.
There are three kinds of protected balsamic vinegars. Two of them are traditional balsamic vinegars.
The first one is the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. The second one is the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Reggio Emilia. Both of these are created from reduced grapes.
The fancy part of it all is they are aged in a sequence of wooden barrels over a few years.
The third kind is Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. This is made out of wine vinegar and is like the previous two vinegars, protected.
