Short answer, yes it is. When it was first up I purchased 3 with the intent of giving two as christmas gifts. I still have the two to give as christmas gifts; however, I am contemplating exchanging the one vinegar with another item so I can keep another one to myself.

Based on the comments the last time this was offered, it really is worth the price.

Sorry, thought I took longer than that deciding if I could think of anybody to whom I could gift a bottle.

Definitely in this go-around, just trying to figure out if I need 2 or 3. Missed it the last time & been kicking myself ever since!

Ah, you're around. Yeah this is great stuff. A little goes a long way so I still have 3/4 of a bottle left.

I still have some of the bottle I bought last time around. It is worth it, if you've never had real aged balsamic, you are in for a real treat.

I put mine on ice cream!

I wonder if there is any chance that the next offering will be a really nice trio of flavored oils... The two together would be great in a gift basket!

My favorite is to drizzle it on parmigiano reggiano and eat as is. I love this stuff, and still have over 1/2 a bottle and a full bottle in the box.

Mom's xmas present? Check. In for two.

It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend; one's present or future thirst; the excellence of the wine; or any other reason.

If I remember correctly, during the rpm tour we had the heirloom tomato salad with the house-made mozzarella at Tra Vigne and the flavors in the balsamic were out of this world! WD, thanks for adding the quote and the perspective. Now, to decide: how many to get?

Say what you will about the 'value' of $35/bottle BV, but as far as I can tell, it's about half the cost of the only other place I could find it online. ShopWiki found it for $75/bottle (but that does include shipping). Same 250ml bottle size (double checked).

I found this for $75 on one website, which makes this really worth it in my opinion

You're not kidding. I've been using it what I consider to be fairly liberally and it just keeps going. 'Course I'll probably try using it tomorrow or something and discover I'm finally all out and start kicking myself for not buying more.

it's definitely worth the price, I just can't afford it right now. Not and have a prayer at buying the other stuff I both know and hope is coming up

So you're saying I should get one for me and one for mom for Xmas, right?


PS. You wanna go in on splitting a case of TyC wines at the sale? It's getting very hard to resist.

Hi All
This is Howard Case and I am the president of Casa de Case, the importer of Cavedoni Balsamic Vinegars. We are a small, very specialized Italian food importer in San Francisco. We focus on wholesale sales to the best restaurants in the Bay Area, but we also supply products to specialty stores, and as some of you know, this is the second time we have hooked-up with Wine.woot to offer Botte Piccola, this time just in time for your Holiday giving. We are extremely proud to represent Cavedoni, and I will check in here from time-to-time to answer any of your questions.

My opening comment, is that the offering here is an extraordinary value as some of you have already discovered surfing around.

What is this TyC sale you speak of? I assume that means Ty Canton.

I was lucky enough to get labratted last time it was up. It was excellent and worth the money as it was as good or better than some I've had that was twice the price. It was summer when it arrived, so we had it on strawberries and vanilla ice cream (I know, sounds weird, try it!) and also on bruschetta.

It is thicker and sweeter than regular balsamic so it has a sweet and sour flavor that you don't get in un-aged balsamic.

If you give this for the holidays, your recipients will thank you!

Insert witty saying here.

I am so very tempted. The real Balsamic is light years from the norm.

Very tempted to spend da bread and go in for 3--one for Mom, one for Dad and stepmom, and one for moi because even though I still have a lot left I want more! :D BTW this is sublime on fresh stone fruit or ripe pears, cut up, as well as drizzled on aforementioned hard cheese.

Give me a 30 year old & I will buy it. I can get better 12-15 year old BV for cheaper at my grocer.

Can this be purchased for someone under the age of 21? It's not really wine.

Sucked in for 2, 1 for me and 1 for my sis. Though I really wish we could get the zinfandel vinegar that we had at Seghesio on the rpm tour. Best vinegar I have ever had. But they don't even sell it commercially, just use it for catering.

I can't wait to try this. As I'm a noob in the world of aged balsamic, any other recommendations on good pairings? I've already seen caprese, bruschetta, reggiano (sounds amazing!), strawberries and vanilla ice cream. Anything else jump to mind? How is it in cooking?

Anyway, I'm in for one.

I'm in the same boat. I've never had it but could'nt say no after seeing how much everyone loves it. I can't wait to see what the favorites are...

Let me ask a quick question that I know I'll have once this arrives at my house. Once opened, how do you store the pour spout? Do you rinse it off and put it back in the box, replacing the original cap on the bottle? Leave it in the bottle permanently and just cover with plastic wrap or something for storage? I'm assuming it doesn't come with instructions, and it would just be my luck that I would ruin this fine specimen of vinegar.

more than enough wine.woots!

Welcome back! We have been really enjoying the balsamic from our earlier purchase.

Anyone on the fence, this sold out early last time around so don't wait and and miss this great deal. This balsamic and farmers' market berries helped to finally convince my wife that she didn't hate strawberries, she just hated over-produced tasteless mass-market strawberries...

Yes. the only time the age thing comes into play is when there's alcohol involved. No alcohol = no age limit.
