The Piedmont PGI Hazelnut – Alta Langa
Universally recognised as the best hazelnut in the world, the Tonda Gentile delle Langhe Hazelnut is one of Italy’s finest agri-food products
Its characteristics and excellence mean that it is particularly well-suited to use by the confectionery industry, crowning it as undisputed queen of Piedmont’s most refined patisserie.
It stands out from other varieties due to its particular fragrance, its deliciously persistent scent and flavour after roasting, and its complex aromatic profile. It also offers a good yield when shelled, is easy to peel and suitable for long storage, besides having a very high nutrition and energy value. These qualitative characteristics have earned it an important title: it is the first Piedmontese product to have been awarded the exclusive PGI mark (Protected Geographic Indication).
