Chestnut honey is produced in the month of June in the mountains of Piedmont. Precisely on Mount Besimauda (CN)
The chestnut tree belongs to the same family as beeches and oaks.
The chestnut was a primary source of nutrition in the mountainous areas of the Mediterranean where grains did not grow well.
Chestnut honey has a strong aromatic taste and a slightly bitter after taste.
Rich in pollen content, mineral salts and tannin, with a high proportion of fructose that resists crystallization and a relatively low acidity.
Dark in color, ranging from yellowish brown to almost black, sometimes with amber hues, it has an aromatic, pungent herbal aroma and taste and slightly tannic (due to the tannin in the tree).
