The most used dressing in the world: Balsamic Vinegar

Modena MO, Italia

Many of you know about Balssmic Vinegar but most of you don't know the difference between the traditional balsamic dressing and industrial balsamic dressing. The Traditional Balsamic Vinegar  comes from a tiny city called Modena. It has a long procedure, ages in small barrels made up of different types of wood, then it is evaluated by the Commission of certified tasters. After passing a strict test, it is bottled and marked.  The tasters express their evaluation through scores, necessary to classify the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena as refined and aged at least 12 years or very old and aged at least 25 years; these are the only two acknowledged types. Its rich flavour and taste make it able to satisfy the most variable unimaginable matchings. It is to be very expensive of course. Here comes the industrial one: a remake of the traditional one, a cheaper one for the public. There are so many industries in Italy producing it; among them Varvello with its head office in Turin. Seems that since two years it is necessary having a branch in Modena in order to maintain the production of the industrial balsamic dressing. This is a reason why Varvello celebrated today its new branch in Modena with its building projected by Archilinea of Sassuolo. Its is a high-tech industry with just two employers: everything is automated. Mr. Luca, the manager, with 27 years of experience in this field, can guide you around the factory, really worth a visit seeing the production of one of the world most used dressing.
