Scribo La Tradizionale Limited Edition Fountain Pen

“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 changingits 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, exactlyas 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 dropcontains, 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. Just as the drop of vinegar preserves the memory of each passage from one barrel to the other, writing is the tool that, par excellence, preserves our thoughts, and witnesses the passage from one idea to the other, in this way conveying creativity and imagination.

Massimo Bottura, the Chef patron of the three-star Michelin restaurant Osteria Francescana, has over the years brought the Emilian cuisine to its highest level of excellence, paying homage to it and revolutionizing it at the same time. Massimo signs this collection with us dedicating a few words to the bond that, for him, ties cooking and writing, looking at the latter as a vehicle to initiate the creative process and to make it communicable and real:

“Every dish comes into the world through an idea. If you welcome the unexpected, everything becomes an inspiration: a colour, a melody, a piece of art, a journey, a memory, an experience or the intertwining of two cultures. It is important to know how tocapture a flash of light in the dark. Before arriving on the table, every dish was simply a thought. Writing is the tool through which an idea becomes real, starting the creative process. Every dish that enters the menu was once only a sketch, a sentence, or just a word. Writing makes an idea concrete and makes the invisible visible before it becomes a gastronomic experience”.
Massimo Bottura

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.

 

THE LIMITED EDITION

“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 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 ourhomage 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 authentic expression of Made in Italy.
