Can't remember specific names,  we get ours on our monthly shopping trip to Bordighera and the one we buy may not be available here.  

If you buy a genuine 'Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Modena',  it will be OK. Make sure it has that wording on the bottle and a seal the top rather like a wine seal,  and although they are very expensive,  for the small quantity you use and the relatively small difference in price, it is worth buying the best.

Don't then spoil the effect, if you're using it for making salad dressings, by mixing it with inferior olive oil.  Again, with olive oil,  it is worth buying the best.
