Spotlight Spice: Riserva di Balsamico Vinegar
This week’s Spotlight Spice is our Riserva di Balsamico Vinegar, which the AllSpice team affectionately calls “The Riserva.” The Riserva is our highest density and quality vinegar, with even greater thickness and richness than our bestselling Traditional Balsamic Vinegar.
The extra dense vinegar from Modena, Italy perfectly balances sweet and sour with an unmatched harmony of flavors and a pleasant texture. It’s layers of flavor with notes of plum, honey, and cherry give the vinegar a unique appeal. It pairs wonderfully with nearly every flavored and extra-virgin olive oil we carry.
We recommend trying The Riserva drizzled on a Caprese salad, alongside a cheese or charcuterie board, or as a glaze for grilled meats. It’s also perfect in a vinaigrette. Don’t be afraid to give it a try with desserts too. It’s amazing drizzled over berries, chocolate cakes and tortes, cheesecake, and vanilla ice cream. Use it anywhere you'd use a traditional balsamic vinegar.
Pick up a bottle of this liquid gold in the shop or online. And a word of caution – once you try it, it’ll be tough to give it up!
