Alchimia: Fusto x Acetaia Giusti


The Giusti family, honoring its longstanding vinegar heritage, consistently embraces innovation. In addition to producing high-quality Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, Giusti embodies a spirit of curiosity, experimentation, and a quest for new flavors.

The concept of contamination emerged from the desire to repurpose disused Balsamic Vinegar barrels—small barrels that had housed and refined Giusti balsamic vinegar of Modena for decades, or even centuries. The wood, now infused with the essence of this precious black gold, becomes a valuable ingredient and a partner in the creation of unique products, capable of releasing balsamic aromas and intense scents.

This innovative approach, combined with the creative vision of Milanese master chocolatier Gianluca Fusto, gave rise to the Alchimia project: a fusion of raw materials resulting in a remarkable praline that captures the essence of our ageing rooms.


Dark chocolate, with a cocoa content of 74%, undergoes further refinement in barrels alongside Giusti 5 Gold Medals Balsamic Vinegar, representing the pinnacle of our IGP collection.

The meticulous selection of ingredients, coupled with a refined ganache process, gives rise to pralines that are both elegant and smooth.

A genuine taste journey through the captivating fragrances and scents of Giusti's ancient ageing rooms.
