The ultimate pride and expression of the art of Giusti vinegars, the "Banda Rossa" was the personal gift from Uncle Giussepe to family members. Of great body and concentration, it is distinguished by its extraordinary complexity and rich bouquet of aromas. Notes of plum, black cherries and sweet spices, infused with the fragrances of the ancient woods in which it was left to age, persist long after tasting. Aged in a series of antique small casks, dating back to the 1700's. Extracted in limited quantity, once a year. Estimated age 20 years.
