Albino Sterlet Sturgeon Black Caviar IMPERIAL
The Sterlet is one of the original wild Caspian Sea Sturgeons, alongside Beluga, Sevruga, and Osetra. It is reminiscent of Sevruga in flavor with a similarly small egg size, coming from sturgeons that only reach about 20 lbs at adulthood. Sterlet is typically known for a soft, delicate flavor and smooth finish. Usually dark black in color, this rare, light white golden caviar comes from the small population of Albino Sterlet sustainably farmed at prestigious Giaveri Caviar Farm, Italy.
