"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Bring the vinegar to a boil in a medium saucepan; boil rapidly until it is reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place the cheese in a food processor ( a small processor is fine for this amount) or blender and process until smooth and creamy. Scrape into a serving bowl and sprinkle with the lime zest. Stand the bowl of whipped ricotta in the center of a large serving platter. Arrange the berries around the bowl. Drizzle the berries with the reduced balsamic and serve at once.
