Due Vittorie balsamic vinegar: An ambassador of Modena’s world-class reputation
The city of Modena has gifted us with countless culinary treasures, from slices of meaty mortadella to sprinklings of extra-mature Parmigiano Reggiano and the finest glasses of Lambrusco. Let’s not forget the world’s most famous fine-dining chef, Massimo Bottura, and his revered restaurant Osteria Francescana. But the Italian municipality is most famous for its incomparable balsamic vinegar. No company better shows its gratitude to the land and culture of the region than Due Vittorie, who are committed to respecting the environment whilst maintaining the highest standard of quality control. The brand is dedicated to keeping its heritage alive, and derives its name from Maria Vittoria Maletti and Maria Vittoria Regnani, daughters of founders Davide and Giorgio.
Now, in a momentous step, Due Vittorie has further proven its commitment to providing quality produce by joining the Consortium for the Protection of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. This group aims to help preserve the reputation of this world-class product and ensure its continuing prominence in the global market. The company are proud ambassadors of this locally grown product, and given their own influence as the number one choice for balsamic vinegar among residents of Modena itself, they are in a great place to help further the consortium’s goals.
Michele Maletti, son of founder Davide Maletti and sales manager for Italy, is excited by the new venture: “We are really happy to be able to contribute to increasing the value of the Consortium and helping it to pursue the common objectives. We have always believed that union is strength, especially in economically difficult times like the one we are going through. The future of Italy inevitably passes from networking and we are happy to become part of the history of the consortium with our quality that has remained unchanged over the years.”
There are multiple reasons why even the best connaisseurs of balsamic vinegar rate this product so highly. Firstly, it’s the brand’s passing down of the ancient know-how of local farmers. Secondly, it’s the optimal soil and conditions – a semi-continental climate of harsh winters, hot and humid summers, mild springs and autumns. Last but certainly not least, it’s the company’s innate love for the good life and good food. This unique combination of tradition, skill and conditions make Due Vittorie’s balsamic vinegar an exclusive and highly sought after product. Luckily for us, the company have seen fit to make it readily available across the continent.
On top of this new collaboration, the brand is continuing to work towards a series of ambitious goals. Even during the current uncertain climate, Due Vittorie has faith in its product and in spite of the economic crisis, continues to invest in its future. Since the company was founded in 1985, it has gone from strength to strength and now operates in 66 countries worldwide. But the expansion is set to continue with the establishment of new headquarters in Lesignana, which will help them to grow sustainably and further their foray into the foreign market – and hopefully into our supermarkets.
