Products awarded the silver-coloured Argento sticker have generally been aged for 6/7 years longer than those with the Aragosta burnt orange coloured sticker; they are thus more concentrated, which attenuates the perception of acidity, offering a pleasant, complex sensation on the palate. These balsamic vinegars are ideal as a condiment, as well as for almost all first and second course dishes. The rich, intense aroma, which tends pleasingly towards a sweet fragrance, is delicious in mayonnaise and sauces, or as an accompaniment to boiled meats or fish dishes, as well as pasta and rice salads and foie gras. Also ideal with piquant and mature cheeses, especially Parmigiano Reggiano. Served hot, it is especially tasty with fillet of beef, and is excellent for bringing a creamy texture to risotto dishes, especially with vegetables or scampi.
