Italian Acacia Honey aged in Oak barrels "Il Carato" ha won 1 Star Great Taste Award 2017
“Il Carato” is the first acacia honey in the entire world aged for nine months in French oak barrels.
As a liquid honey with a pungent smell that reminds us of mulled wine, with a surprisingly sweet aftertaste.
The best pairing combination of this honey is with Parmigiano cheese 24 months aged or sheep cheese semi-seasoned. Excellent when caramelising red meat or row on a boiled salmon. It is also very pleasant if combined with Greek yoghurt and with garnish dried fruit.
