acacia honey and prime piedmont hazelnuts hazelnuts (variety: tonda gentile delle langhe), a name that immediately brings to mind the most aristocratic of italian pastry schools. an igp hazelnut with a full, meaty pulp and a particularly intense taste. we favor a medium toasting, since it only takes a few more seconds to deliver more taste and persistence to the palate. only whole, perfectly peeled hazelnuts, with the transparency of the honey serving as a lens on the langa region of piedmont.
the historical, long-established connubium between acacia honey and hazelnuts is also present in nougat, soft or hard. this traditional sweet is made throughout italy, but its recognized areas of excellence are in campania, around cremona and in sardinia.
