Name – Lucini Gran Riserva Balsamico – Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

First Taste Thought – Yum

This is a very nicely balanced Balsamic Vinegar.  The sweetness is perfect to offset the sour.  It tasted wonderful drizzled over fresh mozzarella.  I would define the overall flavor as delightfully mild.  This adds flavor without overpowering.  Very good with olive oil and bread!
