Chestnut honey tends to maintain its liquid form due to its high level of fructose. It crystalizes very slowly, but not in a regular way. Its colour is a dark amber with a reddish green tint. When crystalizing it becomes a mahogany colour.
The honey has an intense fragrance, is not very sweet, with a long lasting almost bitter taste.


Apicoltura Pitarresi

 In 1990, the company was founded from the passion for observing bees, which had been conducted for many years on a non-professional level. Nomadic beekeeping means that a wide area of nature can be covered, allowing the production of different qualities of honey such as acacia, millefiori, chestnut and linden. The Pitarresi company also produces propolis and a certain amount of royal jelly and pollen.
