ORGANIC RED WINE VINEGAR
The natural fermentation and barrel-ageing of selected organic Italian grapes gives this red wine vinegar an appealing cloudy rose-pink colour and a balanced, fruity aroma. Unpasteurised, unfiltered and with no added sulfites, it is rich in live bacteria and contains the nutritious 'mother'.
Wine vinegar has a very old history in Italy where it has been prized since Roman times for its therapeutic properties and culinary uses.
