Our farm Prunotto M. cultivated in our orchards in Alba, Langhe and Roero, the cherries from really long time.
The cherries are harvested by hand several times in the season to respect the natural aging and to allow us to have a product at the right point of ripening. On that way the fresh fruits are naturally sweet and with an excellent quality; we work in few hours after the picking, adding the syrup natural “light” made with water and sugar cane.
The result is a product preserved with the same characteristics of a fresh product with unique organoleptic properties and enhances the distinctive flavor of cherries, the fruit is very typical spring but retained for consumption in the winter, when there is plenty of fresh fruit season.
The preserved fruit is an evergreen classic that reminds us of the one prepared for us by our grandmothers
