Chestnut Honey is a Mono-Floral Honey.
This sweet chestnut honey is an aromatic variety, bursting with flavours. Its unique flavours make it a very popular variety among honey connoisseur
Chestnut honey has a strong aromatic taste of chestnut, light caramel nuts with a hint of vanilla and a slightly bitter after taste. Rich in pollen content, mineral salts and tannin, with a high proportion of fructose that resists crystallization and relatively low acidity. Dark in colour, ranging from yellowish-brown to almost black, sometimes with amber hues, it has an aromatic, pungent herbal aroma and taste and is slightly tannic (due to the tannin in the tree). The flavour is unique, not very sweet and with an almost bitter aftertaste and very persistent, highly appreciated by those who like a strong, less sweet honey. Blossoms from May to June.
It is excellent with aged cheeses (Stracchino, Ricotta) or hearty meat dishes. Or try it the Tuscan way; drizzled over a piece of Pecorino Toscano with some fresh pears. Also worth trying on natural yoghurt and granola.
