Tasting Notes: This hazelnut and cocoa spread is incredibly flavorful. It contains more cocoa powder than the Barbieri Crema Chiavarina, which results in a spread of darker color and richer intensity of flavors. Think light chocolate in contrast to dark chocolate, but the Crema Nocciole Noire does not contain any bitter notes.
Location: This spread was created to showcase the Chiavari hazelnuts (up to 8 different cultivars or varieties) characterized by a very intense taste. Hazelnut growing in the province of Genoa is an ancient tradition. Trees grow in the valleys on terraces. Chiavari is a town near Genoa where hazelnut production is especially important to the local economy. The first written documentation of hazelnut cultivation in Chiavari dates back to the 15th century ( source ). The hazelnuts for Barbieri Crema Nocciole Noire are farmed organically but not certified.
Ingredients: Your conscience can be clean as this does not contain any palm oil! The ingredients that make up the cream are 50% hazelnuts and then sugar and cocoa, because simplicity is the best ingredient.
