Terra del Tuono has always been a family-owned Acetaia
Since 1892, children have been succeeding their parents in its management.

Carrying on the traditional legacy.

We have always worked together with the best Chefs, in order to undergo the pursuit of new, refined tastes. There are so many ways to give originality and character to your cooking using our range of products!
People of Balsamic
In our Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena the color is black and shimmering, while in the younger one it’s lighter, tending to dark brown.
However, it must always be shiny and bright. As the product becomes more refined, the density becomes gradually more and more consistent.
In the Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, the perfume is more persistent and more delicate, with its characteristic bouquet of old wood and mature flowers.
The taste is a magical fusion of precious ancient scents and delicate must fragrances.
A unique experience that must be lived.
In the long-aging product, sweet and sour are always well balanced, with their persistent scents. We’ve been working for more than 100 years to do it well. A life isn’t enough…
To us, People of Balsamic
Some little secrets
There are five barrels in a Balsamic Vinegar of Modena barrel set, and each one has a different function. Within our Acetaia, a set consists of a series of barrels built with different wood essences:
Cherry wood makes the taste sweeter, Chestnut wood makes vinegar dark, Mulberry wood makes it thicker, Juniper wood enhances its taste, and Oak wood gives it a noble and ancient scent.
It takes a flawless harmony for our Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI and a deep knowledge and extensive expertise is required to make decisions about the wood order and to choose the best period of the year to fill up the barrels in order to obtain the perfect taste balance for our products.
Experience, Passion, Tradition: our ingredients for excellence and our most important values.
