July; flowering was anticipated in May - June in the past.

Castanea sativa M. flower nectar and other plant species in non-majority quantities. The chestnut tree is a large tree of 25-40 meters, with wide foliage and yellowish flowers. It is found in southern European forests, Algeria and Asia; in Italy chestnut groves are both natural and cultivated.

Amber color, tending to dark tones.

 

Olfactory Examination

Clear with a strongly intense and pungent smell that recalls tannin or phenol... sometimes, even the cooking water of chickpeas. Some people define it as "railroad crossbar", that is the smell of wood soaked with bituminous materials, so spicy and wild.

 

Taste Examination

Reminiscent of the smell: astringent, almost tannic, with a bitterish perception, quite persistent and clearly not very sweet... however, pleasant and quite captivating.

Recommendations for use

Given its characteristic bitterness, it should to be paired with cheese that is not excessively spicy, indeed with sweet taste, mainly cow's milk. Some find it excellent as an addition to a good mocha coffee, instead of more "transparent" sweeteners, for its combination with bitter tastes coming from the roasted bean. Traditional Medicine gives it antiseptic and slightly astringent properties in the intestine as well as supporting the circulation.
