Sulla honey comes from a native Italian legume, also known as French Honeysuckle. The bright red flowers are irresistible to the bees and the resulting honey is perfectly smooth, pure and delicate in flavor. Also try Millefiori Honey and Chestnut Honey from Franca Franzoni.
About the Producer:
Franca Franzoni is a bit of a kindred spirit with her bees. They fly around the countrysides of Chianti, collecting nectar from her chestnut trees and fields of wildflowers and bring it back to the hives that Franca painstakingly maintains. She watches the bees carefully, monitoring their collection and movement, waiting for just the right moment to harvest the honey. These honeys are gathered using no heat whatsoever - only centrifuge is used to remove the honey from the hives and time passes to allow the honey to mellow.
