Simmered in copper kettles over an open flame, Saba Reduction, known as a 'Dressing' in Italy, is the sweet reduction of grape must. It's the same must used for balsamic vinegar, except cooked down even more, to about one-third its original volume. Saba is aged for two years in chestnut and oak barrels. The result is a pure, sweet, syrupy expression of the Trebbiano or Lambrusco grape. With a wonderful fruity character, Saba has notes of ripe grapes, sweet plums, and raisins.
Try drizzling it over cheesecake, dressing a fruit salad, serving it on panna cotta, using it in marinades, or serving it over ice cream. Saba makes for a very exclusive holiday gift. Limited quantities, so order early.
