Facts on Calvisius Caviar

Calvisius Da Vinci® Caviar
In dedication to the legendary Italian genius, the newly launched Da Vinci caviar is named after the legendary character of an intense, eclectic native and distinctive personality, Leonardo Da Vinci. This caviar is the true blue Italian specie obtained from the Italian Adriatic Sea sturgeons. These medium-sized eggs (2.4mm) are delicately extracted with a perfect degree of ripeness to achieve a smooth consistency in its silky, fresh, intensive and decisive taste. With lucent shades of brown to black, it portrays the sophisticated and elegant features of this unique and inimitable caviar.

Calvisius Venise® Caviar
Introduced with great success into the US and French markets since 2005, this exquisite caviar is obtained from a cross breed between the Siberian Sturgeons and the Adriatic Sturgeons that are nurtured in warm water ponds. Slightly smaller than the White Sturgeon and Oscietra, Venise displays an all-rounded flavor which is intriguing and intense that lingers on the palate. The Venise is easily distinguished with its varying dark to light brown nuance.

Calvisius Oscietra Classic® Caviar
The highly-prized Oscietra Caviar is cultivated from the Russian Sturgeon (Acipenser Gueldenstaedtii), a native species of the Caspian Sea. The Sturgeon which was at one point at the brink of extinction is now flourishing due to conservation efforts in Italy. This prized fish is now living in the pristine river waters of Ticino Valley located in the Lombardy and Piedmont Regions. To safeguard the species, the Oscietra caviar can only be harvested twice a year. Protected from overfishing and environmental pollution, the sturgeons grow up freely in the 10 hectares of spring water. As result of stringent controls over the optimal breeding environs, the medium-sized Oscietra caviar tastes outstandingly sophisticated and complex with an unmistakable nutty aftertaste and appealing translucent shade of dark grey to amber.

Calvisius Tradition® Caviar
Embodying all the great qualities of the original White sturgeon, this is the supreme example of great Italian craftsmanship of the royal specialty. This medium-large sized White Sturgeon //roe is slightly smooth and firm in texture, complemented with an intense aroma, creamy and light nutty flavor. Its prestigious features and warm-brown to charcoal-grey shade of elegance distinguishes itself from the others with the ability to perceive the caviar connoisseurs.

Agroittica Lombarda - Farm behind Calvisius brand
Agroittica Lombarda, one of the most prolific caviar farms in the world, produces more than 20 tonnes of caviar annually under Calvisius brand. The company is renowned for its successful sustainable farming efforts to nurture the sturgeons for their precious roe. Unlike other farms which recycle the same water through their tanks, Agroittica Lombarda treats its sturgeons to a constant supply of fresh spring water in 60 hectares of gravel ponds. Combining traditions with state-of-the-art technology to provide purified water and filtered air, the white sturgeons are born and bred in a controlled environment which is conducive to the conservation of the species. As a result of the stringent process in caring for the fish, Agroittica Lombarda is able to produce fresh, quality caviar that has been highly regarded by connoisseurs in USA, particularly in New York, and Europe. The firm's sustainable aquaculture efforts are noteworthy given its certification by Friend of the Sea, an international non-profit NGO founded on the mission to conserve the marine habitat.
