Aceto di Fico Bianco, or White Fig Vinegar, is a traditional Italian vinegar made from the juice of white figs. It is a specialty product that is mainly produced in the Campania region of Italy. Specifically, it can be found in the towns and communes of Cilento, Vallo di Diano, and Alburni. These areas are known for their fertile soil and ideal climate, which are perfect for cultivating high-quality figs.

To make Aceto di Fico Bianco, the juice of white figs is fermented and aged in wooden barrels for a minimum of three years. This aging process gives the vinegar its unique flavor profile, characterized by a delicate sweetness and a hint of fig aroma. The vinegar has a golden color and a smooth, velvety texture.

Aceto di Fico Bianco has been recognized with the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) label by the European Union. This certification ensures that the vinegar is produced according to specific traditional methods and comes from the designated geographical area. The PDO recognition guarantees the authenticity and quality of the product.

One popular recipe that incorporates Aceto di Fico Bianco is a fig and goat cheese salad. This refreshing salad combines fresh figs, creamy goat cheese, and a drizzle of the vinegar for a delightful balance of flavors. Another recipe is a fig and prosciutto bruschetta, where the vinegar is used to enhance the sweetness of the figs and complement the saltiness of the prosciutto.
