DOUBLE WIN FOR FONTANA FORMIELLO VINEGARS AT 2020 GREAT TASTE
GREAT TASTE AWARD 2020
Fontana FORMIELLO Gastronomia (FFG) vinegars celebrate double win at this year’s Great Taste Awards (GTA). FFG Organic Apple Cider Vinegar was awarded 2-star GTA, while FFG Organic Red Wine Vinegar received 1-star GTA.
FFG Organic Apple Cider Vinegar was praised by judges for its ”cloudy, peachy appearance with a nose that's not too sharp” and for retaining “some wine-like and cider aromas.” Judges have also highlighted: “The citrus tang is effervescent on the first sip. Rounded and juicy with a tart, clean finish. Delicious and drinkable.”
FFG Organic Red Wine Vinegar was characterised by judges as “a rather special red wine vinegar, appealing in its balance, palatability and interest” with ”a most appealing rose-pink, cloudy colour, and a gently grapey, elusive aroma”
FFG organic vinegars, such as apple cider, pomegranate, and wine vinegars are made with the “mother”. They are unpasteurised and produced without added sulphites in order to maintain the live bacteria from the natural fermentation of the vinegar.
Fontana FORMIELLO Gastronomia offers traditional Italian foods from top-quality everyday essentials to special gourmet products, each one sourced from hand-picked specialist producers. In addition to vinegars, it also includes risotto rice, ancient grains, flours and pasta.
