Using the same grapes as in Balsamic, the reduction is accomplished entirely by cooking whereas, with Balsamic, the reduction is accomplished very slowly by evaporation in wooden casks. While the Saba is aged after being cooked it is ''only'' aged for two years in chestnut and oak barrels. 

This sweet condiment is i
