Pojer e Sandri’s single-fruit vinegars are not
your typical fruit vinegars (which are usually made by infusing wine vinegar with fruit flavors or essences).
This brilliant Italian fruit vinegar—made by Pojer e Sandri, one of the most well-known wineries in the Trento region of Northern Italy—starts with the locally-sourced blackcurrants from the Martello Valley grown by the winery’s neighboring farmers.
The fruit is gently pressed and its juice is inoculated with yeast to ferment. When the fermented fruit juice achieves the right sugar content, it is transferred to oak barrels with some “mother” vinegar—a process known as the trucciolo lento method—and aged for 18 to 24 months.
The result? A beautifully-balanced vinegar bursting with freshly-picked fruit flavor and sharp, yet not-too-sour bit of vinegar. Pojer e Sandri’s exceptional craftsmanship, delectable taste and attractive hand-drawn label makes this vinegar an elegant gift for everyone, from the novice cook to the foodie who has almost everything.
