These chocolates come from Relanghe in Piemonte. They are made by the same people that own Piazza Duomo restaurant, a 3 star Michelin restaurant rated the 17th best restaurant in the world on the Pellegrino list. Another classic of Piedmont confectionary specially made with only the finest Nocciola Piemonte I.G.P..
This is right there with the best chocolate I have ever tasted. I consider myself to be a chocolate aficionado. I have spent a lot of time in Switzerland and dined in many of the world's most prestigious restaurants. I have no problem spending money for exceptional product. When I tasted the hazelnut chocolate loaf, my tastebuds did a back flip. My exact thought was, "this is the best chocolate I have ever tasted." For those that do not know, Piedmont is not only home to some of the best wine production in the world, but also the best hazelnut terroir. The blend of chocolate and hazelnut in these chocolates is nothing short of sublime. The bars come wrapped in gold which only helps to add to the mystique/greatness of the chocolate. It feels as though you received the "golden ticket" from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Whether you are purchasing this for yourself, or people you care for, whomever receives it will be blown away.
