There are different levels of balsamic vinegar. The "tradizionale" is consortium-approved and is generally over $100 for a four to five ounces and could be over $500 for a tiny amount. The next level is the "condimento balsamico" which is not consortium approved, but is about half the price or less than the previous type. The last level is "Aceto Balsamico di Modena", which can be really bad and there are no controls over what goes into it (artificial coloring, etc.).

That being said, Fondo Carrate vinegar is producted from grapes grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides of any kind. Organically grown and produced exclusively from ancient D.O.C. Lambrusco varieties of the Mastri, Salamino and Sorbara grapes. It is 12 years old and aged in oak. Very smooth, sweet, but tangy. It really is a fine vinegar, especially for the price. You can get it for a bit less than $32 from other distributors, but I'm not sure how the shipping compares. Check around -- it's definitely worth finding a supplier for this stuff.

I found this vinegar over 10 years ago and was immediately addicted. Smooth, well-rounded with no bitter taste. I use to be able to purchase it in the local stores but now I can only get it through the internet. I have tried more expensive vinegars and less expensive vinegars and always come back to this. I have always been at a loss to understand why it is not more popular.

I have been using this balsamic vinegar for quite a few years. Nothing else compares to this vinegar that you can buy at the grocery stores. Worth the price.

I live in Nairobi and am a self proclaimed foodie but have very little access to speciality items. I spend free time on YouTube and Pinterest learning new recipes, techniques and cooking styles. I noticed Gordon Ramsey turned to aged balsamic so frequently so I figured I'd buy a bottle to play with in the kitchen. The product came in a timely manner, and in an attractive bottle that I will definitely keep as a salad dressing or oil bottle. The vinegar itself is rich, deep with a sweet-tart character. It's perfect on meat, on salads, and as an overall balancing acid. Gorgeous flavor and I'd be surprised if it didn't have some interesting health benefits. Totally versatile and sophisticated. Buy some. Enjoy it. Thank me later :)

For a few months or less, I accidently bought the 6 year old balsamic. Then I found the 12 year old and no comparison. It is thicker and more flavor.
