Giuseppe Giusti 6 & 12-Yr Balsamic Set
Like fine wine, the key ingredient of these gorgeous vinegars is patience. Years of patient waiting while they mature quietly in aged oak casks, and the result is more than worth it. This gift set contains one young-ish and one middle-aged vinegar in attractively-labelled bottles, which will look wonderful on display in the kitchen. An ideal gift for all foodies, guzzlers, gourmands and chefs.
The six year-old vinegar is sharper, and closer to your everyday buy, so use as you fancy in salads, dressings, marinades and sauces. The 12-year is a little sweeter and more syrupy, and requires a bit more showing off, so consider serving it simply in a bowl with some fine olive oil as a dip for artisan bread - that way the flavour will have free reign.
