Chestnut Honey from the Langhe Unesco Heritage Site 250g

£6.50 GBP

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.

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.

Producer Learn more about who made this product.

Made and harvested in the Langhe Region, the Unesco Heritage Site in Piedmont, this honey has a story of its own.

In June 2018, we were driving around the Langhe with Red (the beetle, our vintage car also providing the name to our previous company), and showed up at Matteo's door, completely unannounced. He welcomed us, let us taste the different honeys you see here in our shop and also Matteo's mum grappa made with cherries' leaves, which was to die for.

A year later, we went back to visit the bees and the hives, which was a fascinating experience in itself. We are proud to support young and dedicated producers like Matteo Montaldo.
