Desperately seeking "Ducato Entense" balsamic vinegar!
Does anyone know where I can buy this balsamic vinegar?
Thanks so much!!
You did add balsamic or balsamico to your search terms, didn't you?
After that, click on Translate this page, or English results only, or go to the Italian websites and click on the British flag (for English). Then, it's just clicking and reading to find an importer or company from which to order. It's a little Internet sleuthing, but a worthy chase if the product is special to the OP or you. You can also click on "Contact" or "Contatti" and write an email requesting info.
The name Ducato Estense comes from the Este estate, or duchy (dukedom), reportedly the birthplace of balsamico. You could also plug in Este as one of your search terms. Same with Duca (instead of Ducato).
So I just did another search on Este and balsamic and found a bit of the history and at least one seller, links below. But I'm sure there are more. Just a caution to buy from a legitimate dealer or seller, because there's a fair amount of fraud in purchasing balsamic.
Here is a link to Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor Mi. They carry some of the high end Balsamics and are a very reliable mail order source.
For an every day balsamic the best I have found is the 365 brand carried by Whole Foods. They do have an organic and a standard however I prefer the non-organic in this product. Both are under ten doallars a bottle and superior to many I have tried that cost far more.
Hope this helps.
You can order a "spray" version from Poland...
Since it costs about $6.10 (converted), my guess is that you could easily substitute almost any off-the-shelf balsamic vinegar.
Or you can write to the manufacturer, whose address is here:
