The production process of the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
The production is highly qualified by the CERMET, authority designed by Agriculture Ministry.
The production chain

Every year a part of must (or younger vinegar, depending on the barrel) is added to the smaller barrel, in order not to run out of product because of evaporation.
