Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena DOP: an aphrodisiac?

“Modena, the noble city boasts, in fact, a perfect triad of products which, consumed together, give a sense of intoxication and exaltation, a worthy prelude to any erotic moment: Balsamic Vinegar, Lambrusco, Nocino.”

The most romantic periods of the year, such as Valentine’s Day, arouses in people an aphrodisiac sensation that the modenesi think can be enhanced by their traditional balsamic vinegar which is cited by many as a natural aphrodisiac.

What is certain is that if Balsamic Vinegar, Lambrusco and Nocino, are combined in a meal, the partner is most likely to succumb to the other partner’s “flattery-trap”. The cause is assumed to be directly related to the ingested quantity of these specific products.

But are there really foods with aphrodisiac power? Oysters, chocolate, chilis and seafood are known to be the most popular among couples in love, but can we also add balsamic vinegar? The most skeptical and rational people identify the aphrodisiac in the mind of the one who tastes it, in the context and in the features of the partner.

So, the correct answer may not exist. But the important thing is to achieve the goals! So, use Traditional Balsamic Vinegar to enhance the flavors and the situation!
