La Tradizionale Limited edition

A special role is played by the “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale”: this ancient condiment is
already mentioned in the eighteenth-century documents of the House of Este, rulers of Ferrara,
Modena and Reggio. Since then, it has been produced only in these lands and has been able to
dialogue with all the other traditional and new dishes that reside here, accompanying them and
completing their flavours.
Behind this precious condiment lies a tradition made of skillful and precise practices transmitted
within the Modenese families and brought to life in their homes’ attics, true domestic vinegar
factories. Still today, the “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale” is produced by using only the white
grapes cultivated in the area. Their must is first boiled at a low temperature, slowly changing its
colour from yellow to dark brown. Fermentation then takes place inside sets of barrels made from
different woods – among which the oak – selected for their flavours and qualities, exactly as it
happens for the greatest wines. Over the years, the must evaporates and it is brought back to the
right level through a procedure called “rincalzo” where the liquid is poured from the larger barrel,
that collects the must from the latest harvest, to the smallest one. It is from the latter that, after an
ageing period of at least 12 years that can get to 25 for the “extra old” vinegar, only a small, precious
quantity is taken for consumption, preserving in this way the continuity of aromas and fragrances
for the future samples.A single drop of this famous “black gold” is able to release an intense and harmonious flavour.
This is because a single drop contains, within it, the trace of each harvest, the memory of the
embrace of different woods, preserving a skilful process, built over the centuries, where every
human gesture is both fundamental and meaningful. We have chosen a drop to embellish the
features of our new pen La TRADIZIONALE because it is writing that allows us to keep track of
knowledge and practices such as these, to secure them and pass them on.
We have therefore decided to dedicate SCRIBO’s latest creation, the Limited Edition LA TRADIZIONALE, to the “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale” of Modena, an icon of our territory, an expression of excellence of the culinary art of which Massimo Bottura, with his Osteria Francescana, is the best known and most representative exponent.
LA TRADIZIONALE is an authentic Made in Italy jewel: it is entirely made by hand from oak
wood, which has been skilfully crafted from the barrels where the “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale”
of Modena aged for years. The different wood grains and colours on the 12 facets testify to the
uniqueness of every single piece, enriched by delicate and finely engraved Silver 925‰ details,
among which the cap ring, with the pantograph engraving “La Tradizionale”, and the clip, with its
“drop of vinegar”.
LA TRADIZIONALE is made of only 104 limited and numbered pieces. The first four numerations
represent our homage to Chef Massimo Bottura. In addition to the three “Michelin Stars” that
Osteria Francescana boasts since 2012, there is a fourth star, the Michelin Green Star, an award
given to chefs who promote a cuisine based on sustainability and low environmental impact.
The Limited Edition LA TRADIZIONALE is available with all SCRIBO nibs and is stored in a
wooden case containing both a 90 ml bottle of ink and a precious bottle of Gold Capsule extra-old
“Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale” of Modena.
Our piston fountain pen and the “Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale” of Modena together, for an

A fantastic choice of fountain pens and even more fantastic customer service! I ordered a beautiful Montegrappa fountain pen and was met by Stefano's fantastic, professional and respectful customer service. Stefano made sure I was informed about their annual leave and when he'd be able to ship my fountain pen (even though he was probably on leave himself!), which made me value the service even more. The pen arrived on the day when I was told it would, very well packed, with a gratis ink bottle and a pen pouch to match my lavander fountain pen. I even got a hand written note from Stefano, which is just amazing, there's not much more you can do to show personal appreciation of a customer- see the photo. I will shop from the Corsani shop again for sure, given the great choice of fountain pens they have and knowing I'm safe in their hands as a customer. I highly recommend this shop to anyone who wants top products and top customer service!

Ho preso di recente un astuccio per una Montblanc, la cordialità delle persone all'interno dell'attività commerciale è sinonimo di professionalità e conoscenza del prodotto offerto alla clientela. Le vetrine sono ben organizzate e ricche di tentazioni. Sicuramente un punto di riferimento.
