Aged Balsamic (Cubica)Moro
Moro Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is produced in its traditional home of Modena in Northern Italy. Using careful methods that originated more than 2000 years ago, the grape must is carefully cultivated from Trebbiano, Sangiovese and Lambrusco grapes. The slow processes of acidification, ripening and maturing take place in prized oak barrels, as tradition requires.
With the long standing tradition and strict discipline of production, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena has obtained the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) recognition since 2009.
What to look for in this product:
In the early 1900s, an Italian migrant Mauricio Moro left his homeland of Imperia and moved to Malaga, Spain where he built a refinery and packaging company for olive oil. By 1960 his nephew had begun exporting Moro Olive Oil to Australia where it became a well-known and trusted brand. Today, Moro is now owned by an Australian family, but still made in Spain from only the highest quality olives and has become Australia’s #1 brand of olive oil.
Immediately following harvest olives destined for Moro products are processed within 24 hours, where the fruit is squeezed until it becomes a paste. The paste is then placed between pressing mats and is subject to pressure to expel the oil. The oil is then stored in temperature-controlled and oxygen-free tanks, away from any light.
