Famiglia Favuzzi

Favuzzi lemon white condiment of Modena

Description

Slightly syrupy, with a rich golden colour and a sweet, tangy taste reminiscent of candied lemon.

Uses

Enhances the taste of roast meats, fish, fruit salads, desserts, cocktails and light vinaigrettes. 

Distinctives attributes

Bunches of Italian grapes, such as the Trebbiano, Albana and Montuni varieties, are crushed; the juice (or must) is then separated from the pulp, skin and seeds to avoid oxidization and colouration. Next, it is cooked down; the resulting white must is finally blended with lemon and white wine. 

Artisan

When they founded their vinegar factory in Italy's Modena region, Cesare Mazzetti and Marco Bombarda were building upon expertise passed down by their family from generation to generation. Today, Marco's younger brother Luca Bombarda is at the helm of the company, whose cave counts no fewer than 5,600 barrels of balsamic vinegar of Modena with a controlled designation of origin.

Origin

Modena, Emilia-Romagna, Italy.

Ingredients

Concentrated grape must, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, natural lemon flavour.

The world’s leading producer of balsamic vinegar, Acetum, was founded in 1906 in the Modena region, the only geographical area whose balsamics can bear the Protected GeographicaI Indication (PGI) logo. Indeed, the quality of a balsamic vinegar depends not only on its ingredients, but also on its origin, since natural factors such as the climate, terroir and air play a defining role. The company is one of the largest balsamic producers, leaving the grape must to mature naturally in wooden casks in the most authentic Italian tradition.
