Though the process of making aged balsamic vinegar is complicated, it is simple as well. It does not involve additives, or spices, or flavoring. Unlike ordinary vinegar that has its origins in alcoholic liquid, true balsamic vinegar is produced directly from grape juice.
Late harvest, white and sugary grapes, such as Trebbiano, are used. Their liquid, called “must,” is boiled in an open vat over a fire. The must cannot be allowed to ferment. After a series of boiling down and filtering of the must, it’s then poured into wooden casks after cooling down.
Over time, a series of decanting and topping off is completed in a set of wooden casks. The wooden casks are made from oak, cherry, ash, chestnut, mulberry, or juniper trees and all are former wine casks, which will impart flavor components into the balsamic vinegar.
