Made in the heart of the Unesco Heritage site of the Langhe, in Piedmont, Montaldo Chestnut Honey is bitterish, with notes of floral and balsamic. Astringent in taste, slightly tannic, it goes well with strong flavours and also slighlty smoked dishes.
HOW TO USE IT
Ideal with meat, game and aged cheeses, it goes well with strong flavours and also slighlty smoked dishes. Great also with fresh cheeses such as ricotta, Tuscany caciotta, Caciocavallo, but it reaches perfection with aged cheese such as Parmigiano Reggiano. It also goes perfectly with black tea, non-fruity red wines and craft beers.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Strong in flavour, we love this chestnut honey for its anti inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It is also a great source of protein, vitamins B, C and minerals.
100% natural honey from chestnut flowers.
Made and harvested in the Langhe Region, the Unesco Heritage Site in Piedmont. About the company: Montaldo is run by the young Matteo, looking after the bees of his grand father. In June 2018, we turned up at his door completely unannounced. Literally. Nevertheless, he and his family welcomed us, let us taste the honey and Matteo's mum grappa made with cherries' leaves was to die for. We didn't get the chance to visit the bees, but we'll be back. In the meantime, we trust our taste, and how lovely everyone in the family is.
