Ancient Italian butchery is an art without equal. Discover the fascinating world of artisanal cured meats!
|A very special acacia honey|
|Aged for 9 months in barrels|
|Aromas of cooked wine, leather and tobacco|
Carato is a unique treat, the child of Giorgio Poeta’s ingenuity and imagination. It is very simple acacia honey that is put to rest for 9 months in barrels that have previously contained red wine, from which it absorbs the scents and substances, to become a gem for true connoisseurs of taste.
It never fully crystallizes and remains mostly liquid. Its color is spectacular: an amber with tones tending toward ruby red.
On the nose, it is unique. Of good intensity, it is reminiscent of cooked wine, leather and freshly burned tobacco.
On the palate it is quite distinctive, as the combination of honey and wood gives balsamic hints; the aftertaste is sweet and strong.
The classic pairing with medium- and long-aged cheeses is always a good idea with Carato; for a real treat, you must try it on fiordilatte ice cream. It is also great for cooking: you can use it to caramelize meat and even to dress salads.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
INGREDIENTS: Acacia honey
Honey from artisan beekeepers is perhaps one of the most natural foods you can find commercially. However, it is essential to know where the honey comes from when you buy it, because scams, harmful to your health, are just around the corner. How can you be sure of the origin of the honey you buy? Simple, you’ll just favor honeys from small producers who put their faces to it and work with respect for bees and the environment, rather than honey whose origin and composition is not well specified.
Honey is a food rich in carbohydrates that can be immediately used by our bodies to produce energy, and is therefore particularly suitable for athletes and young people, who need a lot of energy. It also contains many minerals and natural antioxidants, which help our bodies stay healthy and prevent cell aging.
Finally, contrary to what one might think, honey compared to sugar, in addition to being a much more natural sweetener, has a lower glycemic index.Therefore, honey should be favored over sugar, both from the nutritional aspect and, of course, from the aspect of taste.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
