FINI Balsamic Vinegar – 3 Leaves

June 1, 2011

Name – FINI Modena – Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

First Taste Thought – Full of Flavor

I have to thank my friends Jonathan & Crystal for introducing me to this outstanding balsamic vinegar.  This is a very bold balsamic that is a great choice if you need a versatile all around balsamic vinegar and only want to have one bottle in the fridge.  I did a taste test with both fresh mozzarella and oil and vinegar with french bread.  FINI performed well on both taste tests.  Our friends have also used this to make a reduction that was drizzled over fresh pears and it was fabulous.  I can happily recommend this balsamic vinegar.

Description – Since 1912, FINI is synonymous with quality balsamic vinegar.  The best selected grape must is patiently aged in wooden barrels of different types of woods (cherry, chestnut, oak, juniper, ash and mulberry) in order to obtain this small limited quantity of precious balsamic vinegar.  FINI adheres to the strict classification system set by AIB (Italian Balsamic Vinegar Tasting Association) in order to guarantee the undisputed quality of this product.  The special quality of this bottle is marked with the 3 leaves symbol which indicates a round, full bodied taste, smooth flavor and aroma and a perfectly balanced balsamic vinegar.  For this reason, the FINI 3 leaves balsamic vinegar of Modena is a very versatile product to be used creatively in a  wide array of applications: such as a salad dressing, sprinkled over cheeses, to marinate chicken, meat, fish and vegetables, to make reductions and even as a topping for strawberries, figs and cakes.

Best of luck,
