The Satin Condiment by Il Borgo del Balsamico is a delicious balsamic condiment that transcends the realm of food: to describe it, we need to borrow words from the fashion industry. Silky, soft in texture, flawless: unexpectedly sweet with a pleasant acidity to contrast.
Aged to perfection in oak barrels, made from cooked must in the province of Reggio Emilia, Italy, using only local grown grapes. Well balanced, aromatic, almost creamy in the consistence, this Dahlia Limited Edition is the perfect gift to surprise your family and foodie friends.
HOW TO USE IT
Use this Balsamic Condiment to complements soft cheese, Italian gelato and foie gras. A couple of drops will suffice to enhance the flavours and enrich your simplest dishes.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Il Borgo del Balsamico is an idyllic place. Nested in the heart of Emilia Romagna, near Reggio Emilia, their garden is straight from a fairy tale. While on vacation, Artist Stefanie Bauer, was inspired by their dahlias and started painting. The result is on this bottle: an impromptu collaboration driven by the desire of putting more beauty, grace and love into this world. Our heart is full and are incredibly happy and honoured to be the only retailer in the UK having this product.

Il Borgo del Balsamico has our heart and soul. We had the pleasure to visit their incredible "acetaia" nearby Reggio Emilia a couple of times and were always amazed by the love and care they put in everything they do. To make their delicious balsamic vinegars and condiments, they only use own locally grown grapes and then start the ageing process that will take years before the product is considered perfect enough to reach the shelves. Some of the barrels are over 100 years old and they come with a story too. The video on the homepage is also a testament of our deep connection to Cristina and Silvia. We are incredibly happy to say that this product is a 100% Gold Beetle Certified™.
