Just off highway A16, tucked away in a hamlet of Irpinia, lies an exemplary family-run business that has for generations, over three centuries, upheld the national art of the turrón. Artisanal craftsmanship (‘manual’ might be a better word for it) and select ingredients (honey, Giffoni hazelnuts, Azola almonds, cocoa etc.) are at the foundation of this brand’s success. They offer a diverse, and delicious, product line, starting with classic almond or hazelnut nougat, either coated or filled with chocolate. Then there are the ‘bi-flavor’ nougats, sweet blocks filled with chocolate and vaniglia, double decker cubes called ‘cremini di torrone’, a sponge cake ‘pantorrone’ (also available in a limoncello variety) as well as soft, crumbly and crunchy varieties of turròn nuggets (almond or hazelnut). There are also plenty of confetti candies (almond, hazelnut, with or without chocolate), chocolate covered hazelnuts, soft amaretti cookies, maron glacé and mostaccioli (including the decadent ‘imbottita’ variety).
