Red Wine Vinegar – Castello di Volpaia (0.75l)


In stock



The method Volpaia uses to make the vinegar itself is a process as carefully controlled as wine making. To make fine vinegar you must begin with good quality wine. This wine slowly percolates into a tank through three tiers of stainless-steel baskets loosely filled with wood shavings and dried vine (grape) cutting. These allow the wine to oxidize and provide a support for the bacteria. This method, which takes about two weeks, preserves the aroma and flavour of the wine, whereas industrially produced vinegar, which can be made in a day, smells and tastes mostly of acetic acid. Volpaia red wine vinegar, like fine wine is aged up to a year in large chestnut vats and then in small oak barrels.
