TONDA GENTILE TRILOBATA HAZELNUT
This is the only hazelnut cultivar with PGI (protected geographical indication) certification, a testament to his superior quality. Regulations allow for a production of no more than 3,400 kilos per hectare, and govern the environmental conditions in which the "Hazelnut of Piedmont" or "Piedmont Hazelnut" is cultivated: i.e. in hazelnut groves of local tradition geared to guaranteeing the specific quality characteristics of the end product. The "Hazelnut of Piedmont" or "Piedmont Hazelnut" must meet the following product characteristics: rather irregular sizes, measuring mainly from 17 to 21 mm; shell of medium thickness, medium nut-brown color, not too shiny, with diffused fibers at the top and numerous, though not very evident, grooves; a compact and crunchy texture; extremely refined and persistent flavors.
FRESH WHOLE MILK
We have chosen a high quality whole milk from Piedmont, in order to have it delivered every day to our laboratory. The quality controls on breeders and milkers are very strict, allowing for a gentler pasteurizing of the milk needed to keep its best qualities…the same qualities that you find every time you eat our gelato.
