Description

Acetaia Leonardi’s Saba is unique. The family’s Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes are grown in the 7 hectares surrounding the family home and acetaia. After a gentle crushing, the juice and pulp is coarsely filtered and the mosto (mash),is cooked (cotto) in an open copper vat at 175-200°F for a day or two, reducing it to about a third the volume.

The concentrated mosto cotto is then cooled and placed in large oak casks which were previously inoculated with a “mother of vinegar”, a batch of vinegar alive with a culture of aceto-bacteria. The Saba will stay in the casks for almost 4 years, giving a deep complexity to the Saba, without converting it to vinegar.

The fruity character of Saba makes it an ideal supplement to salads, game or most any dessert. Think of it as a sweet sauce in order to highlight cheesecake, ice cream, fresh fruit and even panna cotta.
