Tasting Notes from the Curator

Immerse yourself within the tapestry of Sotaroni’s 12-Year-Old Balsamic Vinegar, where luscious Pedro Ximenez grapes, aged patiently in American oak casks, unveil their storied past. Breathing in, the bouquet greets you with earthy undertones of walnuts and the romance of vanilla. The complex viscosity reminds one of time’s relentless passage, each drop bearing whispers of history. The alignment of caramel sweetness and vivacious tang entices the palate, framing each meal with a narrative of flavor. It’s an orchestration of sensory delight, where every note from figs to a flutter of smokiness performs its role with aplomb. What sets this balsamic apart is not merely its resonant, symphonic balance of sweet and sour—fit for nobility—but the deftness in its craftsmanship, a craft passed down and perfected through the annals of time.
