Carandini Introduces Authentic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Across the U.S.


MODENA, ITALY
Thursday, September 24th, 2020

The simplicity of a freshly baked slice of a baguette dipped into Balsamic vinegar, and the tingle as it hits your tongue, is something of beauty. That is why I was excited to discover that Carandini, a producer of Italian Balsamic Vinegar of Modena who has been perfecting its methods since 1641, is introducing its Italian offerings stateside. The products, which include a Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (Emilio), Sweet White Vinegar (Bianca), and Italian Cheese Dressing, will now be available at over 500 Whole Foods Markets locations across the nation.

"The precise standards that are met during our production process are what make our vinegars stand out high above the rest," said Stefano Bellei, CEO "We are honored to bring the tastes of our Italian home to the United States and look forward to seeing how our new customers apply our vinegars to their cooking creations."

Production of Carandini’s traditional vinegars takes place in Modena, Italy, which is home to the classic methods used for making true balsamic vinegar, according to a press release. Carandini even carries the prestigious Protected Geographical Indication on its Emilio Silver Balsamic Vinegar of Modena to prove its authenticity.

Along with its coveted Emilio Balsamic Vinegar, Carandini will be introducing several more products to the U.S. retail market, including:

  • Emilio Silver Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI - A premier high-density Balsamic Vinegar of Modena that contains 60 percent grape must and strikes a balance between sweet and sour. The versatile ingredient pairs well with sweet and savory dishes while exuding a perfect mahogany color and a rich perfume. Emilio Silver is a perfect companion for vegetables, meat, cheese, fish, ice cream, and fruit
  • Bianca Sweet White Vinegar - Delicate and sweet, this sweet white vinegar contains 80 percent grape must and is used in dishes that require the preservation of the natural color of foods. The high-density Bianca can be used to dress many different meals or as a base to an array of vinaigrettes to enrich and bring out true flavors of a dish. Perfect to add to beef and fish tartare, savoy cabbage, and a variety of other meats, vegetables, and fruits
  • Italian Cheese Dressing with Sweet White Vinegar and Parmigiano Reggiano PDO - Approved by the prestigious Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium, this is a Carandini-patented recipe that celebrates the excellence of the Emilia Romagna region. Pair it with dishes like a salad, French fries, risotto, and fish

Beginning each batch of balsamic vinegar with grapes specific to Modena and picked at the peak of ripeness, U.S. shoppers and retailers are in for a treat as they can now stock up on this traditional product that was once out of reach. I know that I will be waiting in line to get my own bottle.
