But true traditional balsamic vinegar of modena has two categories of aging one for a minimum of 12 years, and for the second a minimum of 25 years. Because of the time frame it was originally born as a tradition not a product to be sold true balsamics are only made with try beyond Oh or lambrusco grapes, and it develops flavors over time in different wooden casks much like wine or whiskey, and I do my best to pretend that I truly understand the difference at least 25 years old at first you taste the sweetness, and then the acidic portion pitch afterwards it tastes a little more like maple syrup to me 12 years old a little more acidic younger than the 24-year old one.
