5 Gold Medals
The pride of the art of Giusti vinegar, the "Banda Rossa" represented Uncle Giuseppe's personal gift to family members.
Full-bodied and very thick, it is distinguished by its incomparable complexity and aromatic richness. Most distinct, among others, are notes of plum, black cherry and a sweet spiciness infused by the ancient woods in which it has been kept, which persist long after tasting.
The specifications of the "Protected Geographical Indication (PGI)" label stipulates that the cooked or concentrated must comes exclusively from seven grape varieties, all typical of the Modena and Reggio Emilia territories: Lambrusco, Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Albana, Ancellotta, Fortana and Montuni .
It also stipulates that the assembly of raw materials, the elaboration, refining and / or ageing in noble wooden containers must take place in the provinces of Modena and Reggio Emilia.

At Giusti, their treatments are such that they can also be offered individually.
Ingredients: Cooked grape must, aged wine vinegar.
