Mosto Cotto (Saba) means "cooked grape juice" and, like balsamic vinegar, is a condiment from Modena, Italy.  

Made traditionally from the pressed juice of Lambrusco and/or Trebbiano wine grapes, Saba is made using the same method used for producing balsamic - only not not allowed to turn into vinegar.

The juice, or "must", is slow-cooked for 85-hours until concentrated to a thick caramelized syrup, and has all the complexities of expensive balsamic, without vinegar's acidity.

Saba has a variety of uses as a condiment.  It can me drizzled over grilled meats, vegetables, or savory dishes.  Sweet, dark, complex and delicious, this syrup can also be drizzled over fresh fruit, cake, or gelato and ice cream to make a one-of-a-kind desert.  Or try a few drops in cocktails and beverages.

Acetaia Malpighi is a family-owned artisanal company that has been producing exceptional Balsamic Vinegars since the mid-1800’s, passing down strict traditions for five generations.  Renowned for careful attention to traditional methods, and perfectly placed within the Modenese climate, Malpighi devotes all its attention to keeping alive the tradition of Saba.

Extremely aromatic, with flavor notes of sun-dried plums, dried herbs, and sweet, slightly tannic finish.
