This dark and thick honey is quite a distinctive honey with its sophisticated hint of bitterness or amaro, so prized by the Italian palate, is made from the nectar of spring-flowering sweet chestnut trees from Tuscany and Umbria, Italy. It is a tradition in Tuscany to combine chestnut honey with good pecorino cheese and pear.
With over five hundred hives and fifty years of experience beekeeping, Mauro Pagliaccia produces raw, monofloral honey of rare quality. Careful husbandry ensures that queen bees are at their prime during the peak blossoming period of the chosen flower, and cold extraction preserves naturally occurring enzymes, probiotics, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.
