The story of Piemônt Cioccolato is the story of three brothers Alessandro, Valerio and Dario, and today one of their sons: generations of chocolatiers carrying on a family tradition. Time seems to have stood still in the shop next door to the factory, where the shelves are stocked with a selection of products made almost exclusively of hazelnut and chocolate. The company’s speciality is cri cri, a whole hazelnut coated in chocolate and covered with tiny balls of coloured sugar. Then come the truffles, still produced in copper conches, giandujotti, chocolate bars and a magnificent cream spread made with 50% hazelnuts. All goods are made from a mass of cacao from Africa and South America according to the company’s own recipe. The range is vast but we particularly recommend the chocolate and hazelnut bar, reminiscent of a crispy giandujotto and the excellent dragées. Closed on Saturday and Sunday.
