Banda Rossa Balsamic Vinegar by Giuseppe Giusti
Giuseppe Giusti's finest condimento; top of the line. An irresistible mix of the best balsamic vinegars aged in ancient casks...
The Giusti family’s personal choice for special occasions is an irresistible mix of the best balsamic vinegars aged in ancient casks.
Deliciously sweet with fruity notes, this dark brown jewel expertly balances sweet and sour, and rewards the senses with an intense perfume and full-bodied aroma.
Method: Released only after an extensive aging in the most ancient and precious barrels, when the maturation of the product reaches a level of flavor and aroma recognized by the Giusti generations as the “Banda Rossa.”
The attention and aging of this product correspond to the traditional balsamic vinegar Affinato.
Characteristics: Full, dark brown color, high density, intense perfume, and a full bodied balsamic aroma contribute to its unmistakable bouquet. The flavor is deliciously sweet with fruity notes in a sweet and sour equilibrium typical of only absolute top quality balsamic vinegars.
Recommendations: Banda Rossa is a precious, limited product that should be used only according to the most noble of balsamic vinegar: a droplet on a strawberry, a piece of Parmesan cheese, or on ice cream, or tasted and devoured alone for its flavor as an elixir.
A true lover of balsamic vinegar will also use it for recipes that do not involve cooking since it will lose the precise equilibrium and bouquet.

Banda Rossa offers the most impressive balance of quality and price in a balsamic vinegar. From the time I first discovered it in Italy, it has had a permanent place among my condiments.

This is as close as you can get to Traditional Balsamic Vinegar without spending the big bucks. A real treat and a good value.

Very thin w/little structure -a disapointment at this price range -good flavor but seems more like a $30 product

Sour perfectly blended with complex fruit sweetness and a remarkable lack of acidity surrounding it. Not merely tart/sweet, an undertone of caramel and pepper sees to that.
