Compagnia del Montale – Saba from Cooked Grape Must in “pharmacy” bottle – 8.5 fl oz
Saba is a product of the local farming tradition in Emilia Romagna. This food specialty with ancient origins is made by slowly cooking the mosto (grape must). For this reason it is usual to call it directly cooked grape must, which is exactly the same basic raw material used to produce the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PDO. Saba is characterized by a dark syrupy texture with a sweet flavor and a pleasant scent. In the past, farmers used Saba for preparing homemade desserts, enriching simple dishes such as polenta (cornmeal mush) or dipping gnocco fritto (fried dumpling). You will be surprised by the sweetness and velvety texture of this precious gourmet specialty. AROMA: delicate, pleasantly sweet. FLAVOR: characteristic and sweet. TEXTURE: thick and mellow. COLOR: dark brown and bright.
Saba is impressive on matured and flavored cheeses. Good for salads as well as a sweet topping for vanilla ice cream. During the summer time, we suggest to prepare a tasteful refreshing drink by simply blending Saba with some water.
