IL SECCO DEL BORGO WHITE VINEGAR: HOW IT IS PRODUCED
Il Secco del Borgo wine vinegar is prepared in the traditional way of turning wine into vinegar in the presence of wood chips.
Wood chips are first placed in the centre of a wooden cask (today a steel vat); then wine is sprayed from above.
The acetobacteria on the surface of the wood chips gradually acidify the wine, turning it slowly into vinegar. Secco del Borgo is then mellowed in oak casks: here it takes on its warm amber colour and it acquires its pungent, deep taste.
