The only Traditional Balsamic Vinegar DOP “Affinato”  holding an organic and biodynamic Demeter certification in the world.

Its origins are to be found in the Este tradition; it is one of the most renowned and precious dressings in the world, so much so that it has recently obtained the very prestigious DOP certificate (Designation of Protected Origin).

Our Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena can be considered unique in its kind, since Acetaia Guerzoni has been, from its origins, fed only with organic and biodynamic grapes. It is produced from the aging of acetified cooked must only be contained in barrels, all rigorously different from each other both in the type of wood and size; in this company, thanks to a scheme of biodynamic derivation according to which each barrel is linked to a planet of the solar system (Moon-cherry, Venus-acacia, Mercury-mulberry, sun-Ash, Mars-oak or Oak, Jupiter- maple or chestnut, Saturn- juniper or chestnut), Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena follows an absolutely particular maturation path, up to 24 years long, which gives it unmistakable properties and aromas.

Before being bottled, the Vinegar is subjected to scrupulous checks by the Tasting Commission at the Modena Chamber of Commerce, concerning both the characteristics of density and acidity and organoleptic analysis of the product, and once all of these have been acquired, it also acquires the prestigious name of Traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena; to further guarantee the consumer, the Consortium of Manufacturers provides for the bottling of the product lot within the Chamber of Commerce itself.
