About the Producer:
Luca Finocchio is located in Tornareccio, the historic “capital of honey in the Abruzzo region”, with a 3 generation tradition of making single flower honeys from some of the cleanest plants and flowers in Italy. The family which has been in the beekeeping business for over 40 years and currently manages over 1000 hives. They are one of the most awarded producers of monofloral honey's in Italy. In Italy each monofloral must be tested to insure it is true to monofloral type in order to label any honey as being from a specific flower. If it is not judged to be true to aroma and flavor of that flower it may only be called a wild flower honey. Wildflower honey while delicious is very different from these difficult to create monoflorals which typically only the most skilled beekeepers can make!
