Description

From Apicoltura Floriano Turco, in the town of Elva amidst the Italian Alps near the border with France. These honeys are true artisanal products wherein one man tends to his hives, collects the comb, and produces some of the best single-varietal honeys we have tasted.

All of his honey is certified by BioCert for its adherence to sustainable agricultural standards (an EU designation comparable to the U.S. organic, but with much more stringent requirements).

The Miele di Tiglio is made from the pollen of what the French call 'tilleul' and what we call the linden tree. We were used to the light color and complex yet subtle flavors of the tilleul honey from Lo Brusc in Provence until we tasted this honey from Floriano. The honey is a beautiful golden color and is creamed to a smooth consistency - perhaps not as creamy as the Lo Brusc 'tilleul.' We find the flavor to have deep woodsy notes and a rich sweetness on the finish.

About The Producer Arrow down

Apicoltura Turco Floriano

On one of his annual trips to the Piedmont region of Italy, Ihsan visited with several of our old friends, including Matteo Ascheri.

As is often the case, Matteo introduced us to a couple of wonderful honey producers from the region: Dario Pozzolo and Floriano Turco.

The Italian Alps near the border with France are where Floriano brings his hives to collect the pollen from a variety of blossoms including rhododendron, acacia, tiglio (linden), ailanto (ailanthus), castagno (chestnut), tarassaco (dandelion), and melata di bosco.

The label on each jar shows a the beautiful European Bee-eater or Gruccione in Italy perched next to a honey bee. Floriano chose this design as a representation of the important symbiosis of the predator in the bird and the honey producer in the bee.

Floriano takes pride in his sustainable approaches to his honey harvesting and all of his honeys are certified \"biologica\".
