Savor a breakfast with cheese tastings and Lambrusco wine, and perhaps purchase some cheese at below retail price. Next, visit a family-run business producing Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena D.O.P. See the age-old techniques and enjoy a full tasting, comparing a 6-year-old balsamic with 12- and 25-year-old varieties.
