Two beautiful products are paired together in this gourmet box:
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
The INTENSE & FRUITY olive oil (BIO) comes in a red tin and is a blend of olives. It is still delicate, but with distinct green, fruity notes and a fruit forward aroma. This olive oil lends itself to a simple pasta, or drizzled on fish.
This balsamic vinegar is as authentic as it comes, adhering to the 6% acidity standard required to be a true balsamic vinegar, and aged for years in oak barrels. This allows for a potency and depth of flavour that is simply impossible to replicate.
This aged balsamic ( 12 years) is wonderful to drizzle on cheese. Is perfect on vanilla ice cream and strawberries. More sweet than acidic it is better drizzled on salad than made into a dressing. There is no caramel and is thickened naturally.
