After the incredible view in our orchards of one of the most impressive trees of the spring during the blossoning; now is the time of the first cherries. It ‘a fruit rich in vitamins (C, A, B1) and water is present around 85%.
It ‘s tree that keeps incredible memories for all of us; who have never climbed a cherry tree trying to pick its fruits?
Tree of memories and emotions, is a tree with a long life (up to 100 years) and large size (it can reach 32 meters in height for a 1.5 meters in diameter).
Big tree with a great history behind it: Plinio the Older had written about the types in his work Naturalis Historia ( in the botany section).
In a few days it will start the harvest. To best preserve all the unique flavor of our raw materials we have to use all of our attentions on two fronts; on the field, taking care of the earth. In the production process and transformation, in the laboratory. Only taking care of the entire cycle we could offer products with scents and flavors of the past. And the link between the two is the harvest, crucial process.
We pick our cherries by hand and in several steps in different days to try to get as close as possible to the perfect point of ripeness of our fruit with an optimal sugar content.
A touch of color in our fields and in our laboratory, which reminds us the incredible range of colors that the nature offers us and its thousand faces.
In this context and in this period we can taste our cherry extra jam or our cherries in syrup obtained by dipping by hand our fresh cherries in a jar with a syrup of water and cane sugar.
Our sour cherry extra jam enriched our range of products with a unique taste, sweet and slightly acid in the final in a delightful pairing.
