Lemon Vincotto is a versatile condiment that will enhance the flavor of roasted meats, fish, fruit salads, ice cream, desserts and cocktails. Grilled meats and seafood take on a richer flavor with a little dash of Lemon Vincotto. A teaspoonful mixed into yogurt, fruit and chopped almonds make a healthful and refreshing dessert. Absolutely exceptional when drizzled over aged, hard cheeses such as Pecorino, Asiago, and Parmesan Reggiano.
Using a traditional family recipe, Vincotto is made from 100% grape must using two varieties of over-ripened black grapes, Negroamaro and Malvasia. The "must" is reduced to one fifth of its original volume over a low flame for several hours and then transferred to oak casks. The must is then aged in these oak casks for four years, allowing the taste to develop consistently. Vincotto is sweet, velvety vinegar with the subtle overtones of spices, grapes and prunes and used by Italian chefs as their secret ingredient.
