I got some of this one of the previous offerings, I can't recommend it any higher. It's worth every penny. It may seem like not very much for the money, but you don't need much since it's very concentrated.

This goes AWESOME on fruit like strawberries!

This stuff is worth every penny. I still have a bottle left from my last purchase so I won't be in on it this time. Best balsamic I've ever bought. Before people start crying about how expensive it is and how they can get one at Costco for $7 just realize that not everything is the same quality and retail on this bottle is double what is here.

I purchased this the last time it was on wine.woot. This is an incredible Balsamic Vinegar and contributes a lot of flavor and depth into whatever you add it. The "balsamic vinegar" you buy at the local grocery store cannot even begin to touch the quality of the Cavedoni Botte Piccola Italian Balsamic being sold here.

Yes. I am so very excited that this is the offering. I missed out in the past, but I am a great lover of Balsamics. I can have strawberries and Spumoni ice cream available ASAP to RAT.

In for 2!

Expensive, yet worth it. Bought this last time it was offered. If you like Balsamic, you will LOVE this!

I've had this before, and can say without hyperbole that it is hard to keep myself from drinking it. It is that good.

I bought 2 bottles of this the first time it was offered. I am barely through with 1/2 the first bottle and I use it all the time! This stuff is awesome on almost anything. If I didn't have an unopened bottle already I'd be all over this.

Wow, by the time I posted this look how many others said the same thing. How much did we earn for our testimonials WD????

is this sweet enough to be used as in deserts? I've had some balsamic vinegars that are amazing in their richness

"That could be because they come from Modena, in the heart of Balsamic country. Imagine how you’d feel showing up at Skywalker Ranch dressed like a Klingon. That’s what lousy vinegar would be to the Cavedoni family. Unthinkable."

Great tie-in to the main Woot offering. Your writers haven't lost a step.

Yeap, this is divine. Got it the last time and it is great.

Small bottle lasts a long time. Worried that you have to finish something like fast this before it spoils? Don't be. Shelf life basically has 100 year half life. I store mine in the fridge with saran wrap over the top (cork broke).

My fav applications are over vanilla icecream and bruchetta.

This is nothing like your traditional store bought balsamic vinger. Definite buy for foodies.

    My last 5 woots:
  • Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon x2
  • Woot Cellars Boss Monster Zinfandel Six - Pack
  • Armida Winery Poizin Trio
  • Olivestri Siloro olio nuovo
  • Wellington Vineyard Designate Cabernet Trio

I bought 3 of these last time around and they were everyone's favorite holiday gifts. The quality is exceptional even if the price is a little high.

I am so in on this offering. My son has access to wonderful balsamic's in his business, however want to give him this for his birthday. With so many wooters giving it good reviews, I feel I can't go wrong. Having been in the food industry for many years in the past, I would love to be a labrat for this one. Have some ideas in mind to try. Will be home for the next two weeks and willing to create in the kitchen....

I'm kinda wishy-washy on "Balsamic," but I eat this on vanilla ice cream (and lick the bowl). I threaten to beat my wife if she tries to pull it down to make salad dressing or cook with. "HEATHEN WENCH! THAT'S WHAT THE STORE-BOUGHT STUFF IS FOR!"

Is it a problem to order this item if I'm under 21 years of age? I know that it's non-alcoholic, and that the description on the site doesn't contain the usual legal warnings, but when I went to pay, it told me I had to be 21.

I've never wine.wooted before, but the reviews had me in on this one. Plus, the wife and I were just talking today about getting a good Balsamic to hopefully cook more appetizing, yet healthier, foods for ourselves. Send any good recipes my way.

So authentic you have to go to google to translate it into english. Just to put you in your place, the stuff woot is selling does not rate "Tradizionale", but is "un prodotto totalmente genuino".


(Overall signature size was getting large. Recommended signature size is 5k.)

There shouldn't be a problem. I don't see it set to age restricted. Please post again if you're still having troubles and I'll send out a ping to HQ.

Ah, serendipity! We just finished up a bottle this weekend, and I was saying afterwards that it was unlikely that we'd see more on Woot! Shows why I'm not a big-time stock market prognosticator.

Everyone else has said how great this vinegar is so I won't belabor the point, but I will note that it is not expensive, not for the quality. Just like wine, the best balsamic costs more than the plonk, but is well worth it.

There's still a bottle in the cupboard, but I'm thinking we may need another back-up.

I think you'll be good. I mean, aged 7 years, plus people have been posting about using it slowly since the offering last year. Pretty sure you can order with confidence.

Little Vineyards Trio began the slow start to the slippery slope. it was alllllllllll downhill from there!

Well damn you all for making me spend $75 on some vinegar!!!

How should I store this until Christmas? Cold in the fridge? In my wine cooler? Pantry?

Apologies for this FNG question but if I previously signed the labrat form, would I have to fill it out again for this purchase or am I permanently labrat eligible? Danko.


Cheers,
David

PS With regard to the last post, I recommend storing this in a cool dark place.

No whining about no wine here, this is something I might like; wish they had a gourmet woot for stuff like this though.
