FDL treats you to a special journey to a unique place: La Rampata, in the heart of Reggio Emilia, the home of Lambrusco grapes and Traditional Balsamic Vinegar that has been renowned and coveted for centuries.
Here, Alessandra Medici and her family have been creating this exquisite and luxurious condiment for four generations.
Medici takes FDL through the process of creating Traditional Balsamic Vinegar from Reggio Emilia, from the vineyards to the cooking to the ageing in wooden barrels. And explains that the most precious ingredient is time itself. We can’t offer you a taste of this sweet, intense elixir, but the video is the next best thing.
