Carefully selected, aromatic 61% dark chocolate meets toasted Italian nuts in these handcrafted, artisanal chocolate bars by renowned chocolatier Giraudi.
The intense flavor of rich cocoa is married with famed Tonda Gentile Trilobata Hazelnuts from Piemonte that have been toasted to enhance their aroma.
Giraudi always begins with the highest-quality ingredients in order to create a chocolate of excellence. They source precious aromatic cocoa from the best European producers and blend it with hazelnuts from Piemonte, pistachios from Sicily, and other fine nuts.
Their team of skilled workers see chocolate as a living material that must be learned and understood. Giacomo asserts, “It is not easy to get confidence from chocolate but, once you do, you understand that you can play it as a musical instrument.”
Only Piemontese hazelnuts
Giraudi proudly uses only Piemontese hazelnuts in their chocolates. The Piemonte hazelnut has characteristics that no other hazelnut possesses: a particular aroma that releases after slowly roasting, without stressing the product. By tasting a hazelnut, we know immediately which final product will be obtained.
Giraudi buys shelled hazelnuts directly from the countryside, then roasts, crushes, and purées them entirely in-house to be used in making their gianduja and other chocolate confections.
“Our mission is to make the world a little sweeter, one chocolate after another.” – Giacomo Boidi
