Forest honey - Made in Italy
Harvest period: august
Consistency: Honeydew Honey of Metcalfa presents a liquid and viscous consistency. It is clear at the sight, creamy and dense at the taste.
Colour: Honeydew Honey shows a warm colour, dark amber with a hint of black, almost giving a smoked shade.
Taste: To the taste, Honeydew Honey reminds of a great variety of different cereal seeds during germination. For example, barley malt flavour reflects the warm, slightly sweet and acid character of this product.
Honeydew Honey shows as well a slight bitterness recalling burned sugar, as in the French “tarte tatin”, made with caramelised apples. The slightly acid note of this product recalls “rubra”, the Italian ketchup.
Flavour: Smell and taste embrace each other in a spicy dance leading the palate towards a fruity aroma. Cooked or dried fruit as dates, figs, apples and apricots are ideal partners of the persistent intensity of Honeydew Honey, blending with its caramelised note.
