Our hazelnuts undergo a complex procedure of transformation: once harvested in August, they are then manually selected and cleaned, before being shelled and roasted.This is to ensure the best quality of the final product. Following, our hazelnuts are packed in vacuum-sealed bags in order to preserve the aromatic fullness and fragrance. Try Gerlotto’s hazelnuts either as a quick snack or while sipping a glass of Metodo Classico. In the kitchen (whole or ground as “granella”), the T.G.T. hazelnut stands out for its versatility: excellent with both the traditional preparations such as “Panna cotta, “Hazelnut cake”, “Brutti & Buoni”, “Baci di Dama” or innovative interpretations, like muffins or brownies. Noteworthy too when used to prepare savoury dishes: sauced roasts, soft or strong cheese mousse and anchovy fillets.
All of our hazelnuts belong to plantations of owned by our family, and all the steps of the preparation are totally carried out within our farm.
