Asetra Caviar | 50g
Asetra caviar is harvested from the Russian sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii), a medium-sized sturgeon (with a typical weight between 25 and 85 kg) which reaches its adult age between 15 and 20 years, a period in which the female can finally lay her eggs. Asetra is considered the most refined caviar, even more so than Beluga, for 2 main reasons: in terms of its taste, it is more sophisticated, characterized by a distinctive nutty aroma, while in terms texture, it has a thicker and crunchy grain.
The roe is medium-large in size (from 2.7 to 3.0 mm) and is immediately recognizable thanks to its characteristic brown and gold color enriched by amber shades.
In order to produce a quality caviar, one of the fundamental aspects is the feeding method: the use of “drop feeding” guarantees that the sturgeon is always feeding on fresh food. In order to avoid that the fish can feed on food that has settled at the bottom of the river, nets are placed down that prevent them from reaching the bottom and therefore the muddy substrate - which would inevitably compromise the refined taste of the caviar.
Thanks to the precision, to the meticulous care attributed to the product, to our experts’ superior know-how and to the use of cutting-edge technologies, we are able to consistently serve an exceptional product, sure to satisfy the most demanding palates. The freshly packaged caviar is immediately vacuum packed, process that ensures that the product retains its freshness.
Longino & Cardenal was established in 1988 and was the first Italian company to import fresh caviar from Iran: the intuition to import the raw material, repackage it and retail it with a precise identity adopting a new brand proved to be a winning idea, giving rise to a new and highly successful business model. We are proud to have been the first authorized caviar repackaging facility in Italy and all of our cans are distinctively marked with the IT0001 packaging plant code.
The fictional characters that represent our brand – Longino, a Swiss nobleman and Cardenal, a Cuban fisherman – characterize the very essence of our philosophy. We started our activity with caviar and continued to discover many other Rare and Precious Foods from around the world. We have been at the service of some the most demanding Italian and international chefs for more than 30 years, selecting the best caviar available on the market, and now also available for food enthusiasts and gourmands from all over Italy.
