Our Featured Producer:
Nicolo Verrini for RITROVO

Italian balsamic maker Nicolo Verrini is following in the steps of his grandfather, who began making balsamic vinegars in the 1960s. In his 30s, Nicolo represents a new generation of balsamic makers; he is innovative without straying too far from tradition simply for the sake of creating something trendy. Nicolo’s philosophy seems simple: Begin with the very best raw materials and do your best not to ruin what nature has already provided. His results, however, are extraordinary, capturing in beautiful oval bottles the bounty of a particular season in which the featured fruit was at its peak.

Taste his Sofi award-winning Organic Apple Balsamic, and you’ll be delivered to the Trentino region of Italy, renowned for its juicy, tart apples. Organic Citrus Balsamic bottles the vibrant expression of refreshing Italian spremuta—fresh juices of lemon and orange mixed together in a tall glass, served cold. Indulge in ruby-tinted Organic Raspberry vinegar and you’ll discover a tart counterpoint to fresh fruits, mixed green salads topped with creamy goat cheese, and summer beverages. Each fruit balsamic begins with a base of white balsamic, colored with the juice of the featured fruit. In creating this line of balsamics, Nicolo has worked conscientiously to establish a perfect balance of density, acidity, and sweetness.
