Produced from 100% A. transmontanus sturgeon (White Sturgeon), Lingotto is a hard pressed caviar bar that can be grated or thinly sliced. Think of it as a sturgeon bottarga which can be used in many of the same ways. Because the moisture of the caviar is removed, the flavor is intensified allowing a little bit to go a long way.
Use a microplane to grate over risotto, pasta, scrambled eggs on toast or thinly slice (can use a truffle slicer) over favorite recipes to add some delicious caviar flavor.
Unopened: up to 6 months. Each bar has an expiration date attached to the package. Can be opened and reused. Recommended to store in a ziploc or a tight air-free container. Like wine, oxidation can change the fresh flavors of the product.
Ingredients: Sturgeon roe (A. transmontanus), salt
Vertically integrated, Calvisius is one of a handful of caviar producers who not only own their farms but also control packing with the Calvisius brand. Like a premium wine, they oversee production from the beginning to the end, roe to roe. Because there is no repacking by a third party, you can be assured each tin will produce the same delicious consistent quality Calvisius is known for, year after year.
All Calvisius caviar is certified “Friend of the Sea” sustainable as well as BRC and IFS ‘high level’.
The fishing of wild sturgeon is illegal worldwide which has created the need for sturgeon farms around the globe. Calvisius has been farming sturgeon for over 30 years and through diligent research and development, is producing some of the best caviar in the world.
