The prized honey of Corbezzolo (or Albatro) derives from a plant that is as rare as it is particular and symbolic. It is said, in fact, that it was Corbezzolo that inspired the colors of the Italian flag: the green of its stem, the white of its flowers, the red of its fruits. Perhaps also for this reason the Corbezzolo was one of the most significant symbols of the Italian Risorgimento.
For the ancients, the Strawberry Tree was represented in the hands of the Goddess Carna, protector of physical well-being, who used the sprig of the Strawberry tree to drive away evil spirits.
The honey that derives from the Corbezzolo is a honey for connoisseurs.
Flavors and aromas are very strong and persistent, with a strong bitter and astringent component.
The nose is pungent, with hints of ivy and coffee grounds, burnt leather, green pepper, cocoa bean, rhubarb and gentian.
On tasting, you will discover sensations of chicory, wet tobacco leaf, green wood and bitter root. Excellent for the analogy of cardoons and artichokes, or for contrast to sweet and fat cheeses.
Perfect for tasting with a coffee with acid tones.
