Toasted IGP Hazelnuts from Piedmont, Italy. Lightly toasted to remove the skin and bring out the natural rich creaminess typical of the Tonda Gentile variety.
These hazelnuts are sourced from one producer outside of Alba, Piedmont. The Bruna brothers run the family orchard and have proven excellent partners as our sole supplier of IGP certified Tonda Gentile Hazelnuts.
Hazelnuts, much like apples, have many different varieties, with vastly different flavour profiles. Tonda Gentile is a slightly lower yielding variety, grown predominantly in this region of Italy and prized for it’s flavour. With a higher proportion of fatty acids than filberts, these nuts have an incredible creamy richness.
