Created from flowers growing in the Canavese region of northwest Piedmont; a stunning locale dotted with lakes on a glacial moraine created during the ice age. Thick and creamy with a deep yellow hue, the honey possesses a fresh, mint-like flavor with soft lime-infused notes – a stunning addition to herbal teas and as an accompaniment to goat cheeses.
Mario Bianco performed his artistry with his crew of bees in the town of Caluso, located in the northwestern part of the Piedmont, approximately 45 minutes north of Turin. From that vantage point in the Alpine foothills, Bianco and his team of flying assistants worked the flowering patterns of the local flora to produce an extraordinary variety of honeys. Sadly, Mario Bianco, our dear friend, guide and spiritual counselor, died in a tragic automobile accident at an age far too young. His work is carried on with equal fervor and talent by his son, Andrea Bianco.
