Includes cork pourer How is balsamic made? The ripe juicy, matured grapes are cooked into a must in order to prepare them for the balsamic fermentation process in barrels. The grape must is placed in the first larger barrels and then it is moved in what is called the “battery,” a series of barrels of precious woods such as chestnut, oak, mulberry, locust, cherry. Their capacity decreasing (from 75 litres to 10 litres) each of which is capable of giving unique balsamic aromas, flavours and fragrances. The intensity and mellowness of the flavour is controlled by many natural factors in our farm. The temperatures in the loft where the barrels are kept affect the taste. In the summer the hotter weather causes more evaporation and a greater concentration of flavours.
