About the product
This balsamic vinegar dressing was born only a few years ago after a mild disagreement between the members of the Dodi family about the taste of one slightly unusual barrel. After a test during a dinner with some friends who were real connoisseurs that little barrel became the first of a great product. It is aged for 8 years in fine wooden casks lovingly and skillfully tended by Dano Dodi, who today still jealously holds some of the original old casks that belonged to Grandmother Carmelina. Perfect at any time of day and in any occasion, it is fantastic for every type of combination, from simple everyday dressing to the most elaborate food preparation. The consistency of this balsamic vinegar makes it ideal for flavoring raw appetizers, first courses, meat salads and cruditès. Produced in Reggio Emilia from Acetaia Dodi and it is considered one of the best balsamic vinegar condiments produced in Italy!

About the vendor
Antica Acetaia Dodi
It all started in 1891, birth year of Carmelina Ligabue, grandmother of the current owner of the Acetaia Dodi plant. Her father, Anselmo Ligabue, made a set of wooden casks for his daughter’s dowry. A dowry she wouldn’t give up easily. Carmelina loved balsamic vinegar and her casks were everything for her.

Carmelina Ligabue married Ricordano Dodi , Master Dairyman for the production of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese in Bastiglia, near Modena. In 1925 economics went bad and the family lost everything. They had to move to S.Valentino di Castellarano, where they stayed until February 1930, when the entire family moved to Cadiroggio. Rolando - Carmelina’s and Ricordano’s eldest son - also worked as a Master Dairyman. He married Elda en in 1951 the current owner of the Acetaia Dodi, Ricordano, who was named after his grandfather according to tradition, was born.

Ricordano also worked as a cheese producer, but his passion for balsamic vinegar didn’t diminish, but rather increased. The growth of the family induced the growth of the number of balsamic vinegar casks in the Dodi vinegar plant and currently the entire Dodi family is a ‘prisoner’ of the world of balsamic vinegar.
