I decided to purchase this balsamic after reading a few good reviews.

From what I heard from a few people, I expected much more. This is a watery vinegar and does not cling to your food like the better balsamics. I put a couple drops on some cheese and they instantly rolled off onto the plate. It's also much more sour than I expected. The bottle should have a smaller opening as it drips down the side and pours out too quickly. I'd recommend ripping out the plastic piece and dumping it in a cruet.

It is smooth as some others have said and does not leave a bad aftertaste. I think I'll save this for cooking and dressing rather than drizzling on food. I imagine it would make a good reduction. It does make a decent vinaigrette as I mixed it with olive oil and had a salad for breakfast this morning. You don't need a lot.

It's simply not up to par with better balsamics that work well with eveything. I'm partial to thicker, sweeter balsamics, so take that as you will. If you like thinner, tangier balsamics then this may be for you. I'd consider this more of a recipe ingredient than a condiment.

The Amazon price is also on the high side. You can currently get two bottles of this exact product on eBay for $12.

We love balsmic and use it more than any other vinegar but the stuff called balsamic we find in our grocery stores is dreadful. For years I bought balsamic from Wms. Sonoma but they had it on back-order the last time I needed it so I ordered the Lucini from Amazon which came promptly. The Lucini is yummy and the price is right. It's an exaggeration to say I use it every day, but only a small exaggeration. This is the one we'll use regularly from now on.

This is my favorite balsamic vinegar. I read about this brand in cooks illustrated in their comparison, so I decided to check it out. I finally found somewhere I could buy it so myself and my roommate did a taste test with the 3 or 4 balsamic vinegars we had around the house. Well this one was head and shoulders above the others we had and in fact made some of them seem terrible by comparison.

Now for the bad part, for such a great product the container is awful. If you can manage to use this without having it leak out around the cap and get all over your table and cabinets you are a better man than I. Yes, my only gripe about this product is the style cap they use on it.

I swear I would give this product 5 stars if it did not make such a mess everywhere I use it. Maybe the company owners will read this and fix this minor problem. I guess they want the metal cap to convey some sense of style or prestige, but from my point of view it sucks.

This is a wonderfully smooth and pungent balsamic with no hint of the aftertaste that plagues so many products in this price range. This is a superb vinegar easily better that ones priced at two to three times as much. Enjoy!
