Ancient woods conceal the secret of the unmistakable Giusti aroma

The secret of balsamic has always been hidden in the wood of the ancient casks where it ages. It takes decades, if not centuries, for wood and grape must to become the black gold of Modena. The Giusti family owns over 600 casks dating back to the 1700s and 1800s, from which the purest extractions are obtained, responsible for the unmistakable Giusti aroma.
