I've always bought the bog standard balsamic vinegar from supermarkets, even though I could tell when having a good quality one at a restaurant or something that it didn't taste as good. I took the plunge and bought this one and I am now obsessed!! I have it every day on my lunchtime salad with a drizzle of olive oil too, and a tablespoon in a ragu just elevates it to the next level! I've now ordered the orange one to try too. Can't wait to taste it!
