Later, you’ll reach the Province of Reggio-Emilia to admire a real 'Acetaia' with its ancient barrels of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar. You'll learn the difference between the 'black gold' and the balsamic condiments that you usually find in the supermarkets. There will be a tasting session at the end of the visit where you can try balsamic vinegar with 3 different seasonings.
