Produced by sturgeon fish more than 12 years old. Sturgeon is the second-largest species of the family and it has slightly smaller caviar berries than Beluga. Many connoisseurs prefer its more intense flavor compared with Beluga and its subtle, elegant and nutty taste. It excels with pleasantly firm eggs and typically nutty taste in different colors from black to dark brown.
