Villa Manodori is a collection in which Chef Massimo Bottura has applied his creative skills to the production of extra virgin olive oil, Essenziale, a collection of oils made from 100% natural plant oils combined with extra virgin olive oil, and an assortment of authentically-crafted balsamic vinegars. Made in the artisanal style and produced in limited quantities, these versatile condiments are enjoyed throughout the world.
This artisan balsamic vinegar is made in limited quantity from locally grown trebbiano grapes that are Reduced to must before being aged in a series of oak, chestnut and juniper barrels for 10 to 15 years. Chef Bottura follows the same traditional methods of production and careful aging that have been used for centuries by Modenese families. Only under the watchful eye of a master blender can the grape and wood flavors marry to develop balanced sweet and tart balsamico flavor with its dark color and rich aroma. It is the ultimate dressing for greens, grilled meats and vegetables, aged cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano and Grana Padano, as well as fresh strawberries. With its syrupy consistency, it makes a wonderful glaze for steak, pork and poultry.
