Tasting Notes & Tips: A light colour, with a delicate, floral flavour. Its aromatic properties are fantastic with traditional northern Italian dishes such as prosciutto ham with fresh figs. We also like it with sweet (dolce) Gorgonzola or other salty, mild cheeses. Alpine flowers are found high up in the alps in the Valsesia area of Piedmont. This honey is prized because the flowers are only in bloom for a short time and are often ruined by high winds or sudden downpours.
Raw honey is not suitable during pregnancy or for children under 12 months old.
