/ Balsamic Vinegar (8-oz bottle)
Imported from Modena, Italy
From the Abbey of San Pietro
This dark, dense and syrupy balsamic vinegar comes from the
Benedictine Abbey of San Pietro
in Modena, Italy; enticingly aromatic, its smooth, full-bodied taste is sweet and tangy, with spicy and woody notes. Just a drizzle on cheese or strawberries will enhance and complement their flavor; add a spoonful to soups or sauces at the end of cooking for a zesty finish.
250 ml / 8 oz. bottle / gift boxed

Monastero San Pietro, Modena, Italy
San Pietro monastery dates back to the tenth century. Suppressed during the French Revolution, it was reopened by the Duke of Modena, and closed again by the House of Savoy (1866). In both times of closure, one monk stayed on as parish priest. Apart from a brief period (1926-1938) Benedictine monks have always lived in this abbey.
From its earliest days, the monastery had a dispensary which was for centuries the focal point of the medical-pharmaceutical services of the city. The products on offer included preparations made from herbs and flowers grown in the adjacent courtyard. Closed in 1796, the dispensary was reopened in 2007; it sells products from Italian and other European Benedictine monasteries.
