Limited Edition Nougat with rosemary honey and trilobed hazelnuts from Langhe
Rosemary honey – “rosmarinus officinalis” – is one of the most characteristic and rare Italian single-flower honeys, as the plant flowers between February and March, when most bees hibernate.
The term “Rosmarinus” comes from “ros” = dew and “marinus” = marine, in reference to the fact that these plants live close to the sea.
The rosemary flower has a blue colour, rarely whitish.
The rosemary honey has a very clear appearance, tending to straw yellow and crystallizes very quickly. The taste is very sweet, the aftertaste markedly acidic, the aroma vaguely offcine and very reminiscent of flowers, with hints of fresh flour and a bitter almond finish.
In this hazelnut is combined with a Piedmont hazelnut.
PGI of the round gentle trilobate variety, rich in essential oil
and aromatic varieties.
The special limited edition is distinguished by a golden wrapping on which a progressive production number is affixed.
