Balsamic – Vigna Oro – Compagnia del Montale

Compagnia del Montale 8.5oz


Compagnia del Montale VIGNA ORO BALSAMIC is the 2012 winner of the International Taste and Quality Institute in Brussels (judged by Michelin chefs) along with many other notable awards. It is produced in the centuries-old tradition of true “aceto balsamico traditionale” with a designation of origin (IGP). Amazing depth of flavor with a striking balance of acidity and sweetness. It has wonderful viscosity for drizzling on your favorite foods. There is no coloring or thickeners ever used in this vinegar (read: gluten-free), only Modena grape must, aged with care for years. Top chefs recognize the quality of this aged balsamic vinegar. I know there are shelves of vinegar at the grocer–but I promise there is no comparison on your grocer shelves. Worth every penny!

Vino Oro is an excellent value for a true balsamic lover!

Reduced Shipping Costs

Many of our ingredients are perishable and therefore by necessity, require FEDEX Standard Overnight shipping. There is no way around it - it's costly, and understanding shipping calculations practically requires a degree in actuary science!

In order to help defray your cost of shipping, we have incorporated shipping discounts for many of our finer ingredients. These ingredients are noted on the web site and the discounts will be automatically calculated when the ingredient is added to your cart. These discounts are cumalitive, so you could end up with very low or no shipping charges. (dependant on your location)

The best part is that you might as well add that extra pound of mushrooms, a bottle of truffle oil, some pasta or your favorite "pantry staples" because the shipping costs may not even change!


Compagnia del Montale is a small vinegar house in the Modena district of Italy. Strict traditions are followed by cooking grape must in small batches and then aging for years in barrels of varying sizes to reach the desired flavors. The temperature fluctuations of the seasons only aid in the natural fermentation. Many producers have gone to meet the demands of the market by "stretching" a young vinegar and adding thickeners and stabilizers--not this artisan vinegar house. The result is true depth of flavor and balance. See "grower highlight" for more information.

How to Prep/Store

Store out of direct sunlight. Drizzle on fresh-sliced heirloom tomatoes and house-made mozzarella for a Caprese salad without compare. It is also delicious over ice cream or fresh strawberries. The possibilities are endless. You’ll be thinking of what else you can try it on!

Recipe Ideas

Simplicity . . . start with thick-sliced fresh tomatoes (if they are not truly ripe and aromatic don't bother), layer on a platter with thick slices of fresh mozzarella then drizzle VINO ORO over slices. Finish with a nice grind of fresh cracked pepper and serve with crusty bread. I guarantee your guests will be wiping the platter clean with their bread! Set the vinegar out on the side for anyone who just "needs" a little more.
