The perfect unexpected pairing - parmesan and balsamic vinegar. The world’s best of both hail from the same region near Bologna in Northern Italy. This package has a variety of unique aged parmesan from 15 to 36 months and a set of five Giusti family balsamic vinegars.
This parmesan is quite unique. This parmesan was elected from a small company, Bertinelli. It is the only one that produces Grand Cru Parmesan. It features cow’s milk taken during early lactation - within 100 days of the cow giving birth. This creates a valuable taste as it has rich calcium and protein content than your classic parmesan. It is more fragrant - with scents of alfalfa and a hint of leather. It tastes sweet and velvety. The more it has aged, the less intense you taste the milk. You will find this comparison when you taste cheese aged 15, 24, 30, and 36 months. Higher aging also provides room for more complex notes.
Balsamic vinegar comes from grapes and is barrel-aged in the same way as wine. This set of five vinegars was created by request of the Tenor Luciano Pavorotti for his foundation’s charity auction and comes from the historical collection from the Guisti family. Since 1605, the Guisti family has been making balsamic vinegar with a remarkable recipe that has been passed down over 400 years. The set comes in a wooden box. You will find that each bottle displays different awarded medals from five universal exhibitions, which represents the quality and aging system of classifying balsamic vinegar. This award-winning set of vinegars ranges from 6 to 20 years of aging.
Break off a chunk of parmesan cheese and drizzle with balsamic vinegar - the simple and sophisticated way to enjoy the pair.
