Grown in the Piedmont countryside, the cherries used for this jam from Agrimontana have a mellow acidity that is rounded out by a burst of pure cherry perfume. When cooked over low temperature in the old-fashioned way, the flavor comes into perfect balance, with a sweet richness that retains the inimitable essence of fresh cherries.
This “extra jam” is so named because it is packed with as much fruit as can fit into the jar, without additional fillers or too much sugar. The result is a thick, luscious jam that spreads easily and packs every bite with undiluted cherry flavor. With its deep ruby color and intoxicating aroma, it’s like having a little taste of the Italian summer whenever you need it.
In the northwest of Italy, Piedmont shares a border with France and Switzerland. It’s a region that is reknowned for its agricultural bounty, home to decadent specialties including white truffles, barolo, and arborio rice. Azienda Agrimontana’s history in Piedmont began 50 years ago, when Cesare Bardini began selling jams, candied fruit, and chestnuts in 1972. Bardini had one mission: to share the natural riches of his home across Italy.
To this day, Agrimontana is dedicated to creating deliciously clean products using traditional methods, without added colors, preservatives, or flavorings. They focus on sustainable agriculture that preserves the beauty of their home while encouraging biodiversity.
