Colavita Balsamic Vinegar "6 Star"

Colavita Balsamic Vinegar "6 Star"

Name – Colavita Aged Balsamic Vinegar – Sweet Vinegar of Modena

First Taste Thought – Vinegar

Colavita uses their own rating system.  This Balsamic Vinegar has been rated a “6 star” by Colavita.  I would equate the flavor and consistency to a “red label, 1 leaf” Balsamic Vinegar.  The vinegar flavor and sourness is very pronounced and almost overpowers the balsamic flavor.  This would be an everyday salad dressing type Balsamic versus one that I would choose for drizzling over cheeses or other stand alone uses.

My Three Words – Vinegar, Vinegar, Vinegar

My Rating – (5/10)

Description – A superior Balsamic Vinegar is determined by the quantity and quality of aged grape must used in commercial production.  This special “Riserva 6 Star” contains more than double the amount of grape must required by Italian law.  The “6 Star” seal is  a unique quality standard developed by Colavita that promises enhanced blend of tast, sweetness, and acidity.

Suggested Uses – None listed.

Best of luck,
