The DOP classification for Lunigiana honey is reserved for two types: acacia honey and chestnut honey.
The acacia honey of the Lunigiana remains clear and fluid for a long time, though at times it appears cloudy due to an incomplete crystallization process. It is light in colour, from almost colourless to a straw yellow. It has a light perfume, slightly fruity and similar to acacia flowers. It is decisively sweet with a very slight acidity. Its aroma is delicate, with hints of vanilla and it leaves no aftertaste.
The chestnut honey stays runny for a long time though at times it crystallizes late and incompletely. A dark amber with reddish tones, the honey has a strong, penetrating perfume. A persistent flavour with bitter components that vary according to the crop and an aftertaste that is similar to its smell.
