Nocciola Piemonte PGI refers to unshelled, shelled, and semi-processed hazelnuts obtained from the Tonda Gentile Trilobata hazelnut cultivar which is produced in Piedmont and mainly in the area of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato hills.
Piedmont, where the Nocciola Piemonte PGI originates, is a region that boasts five UNESCO sites, including the Langhe – Roero and Monferrato areas. This confirms the fact that man has skilfully integrated himself with this territory, keeping its geo-morphological characteristics unaltered to such an extent that it has been recognised as an integral part of World Heritage. The UNESCO site includes breathtaking views with hills cultivated with hazelnut groves and vineyards. You can walk among medieval towers and castles, stop off in historic villages and taste the traditional specialties of the territory; in other words, it is a Region to visit!
