Melata d'Monregalesi is not derived from the collection of blossom pollen. This unique honey is made by bees that collect special nectar secretion produced by different aphids. Aphids live on alpine fir, oak and linden trees and feeding on the sap therein.
Production time is from July to September which is the 'high season' for insects. Aphids are gentle, any rain season can destroy the aphids which makes it not only rarest but also the most complicated honeys to produce.
Monregalese forests include more oak trees which gives an amazing taste palate to the honey, exactly the feeling like honey has been in oak barrels for long time. This gorgeous honey is slightly sweet, it has medium intensity and persistent. It is very sticky and rarely crystallizes completely.
