Description

The bees collect the nectar from flowers of chestnut trees that in Italy generally bloom in the months of June and July. ADI take the hives to large natural chestnut forests that cover large areas of the Alpine foothills of Piedmont and Lombardy and also the ancient Reventino Chestnut groves of Calabria. The Chestnut blossom is a yellow cluster with a very strong perfume and produce large amounts of nectar and pollen.

The honey is dark in color and sticky to touch and as it is high in fructose, does not crystallize. In Italy it is a favourite honey to use in sweets as it has a slight bitter aftertaste. Chestnut honey also goes well with cheese.
