Produced from the wine of specially selected white Italian grapes, wine vinegars are the most commonly used vinegar in Mediterranean countries.
A lot milder than its red-hued sibling, and less-acidic than its cider-named counterpart, white wine vinegar is great for making sauces, salad dressing, and marinades. White wine vinegar is used in many Italian dishes although is arguably most popular for making sottoli (in oil).
An Italian antipasto often features many vegetables preserved in oil, such as peppers, aubergines and cipolline sott'aceto (pickled onions), which are easy to make yourself. Serve as an aperitiv with some cubed Parmigiano and a little balsamic for some extra sweetness.
