Why are chocolate truffles called that

Antica Torroneria
Chocolate truffle Tartufo dolce nero di Alba (dark) 52% cocoa ~ 14g


The Tartufo dolce nero di Alba is the classic that started it all. With its recipe, this Italian chocolate truffle was the inspiration for all subsequent truffle creations from Antica Torroneria Piemontese. A dark chocolate truffle with a cocoa content of at least 52% and of course the special hazelnuts of Piedmont. The mild, dark dark chocolate with a lot of body goes perfectly with the slightly sweet hazelnuts. The roasted I.G.P. Hazelnuts from Piedmont are incorporated into the Tartufi dolci as hazelnut paste and as hazelnut chips.

This delicious truffle specialty is handcrafted in the traditional factory of Antica Torroneria. The finest ingredients and the Piedmontese hazelnuts from the surrounding area stand for a special taste experience. This truffle contains at least 41% of the slightly sweet hazelnuts of the 'La Tonda Gentile delle Langhe' variety. This delicious truffle specialty is vegan and gluten freeand is handcrafted in a traditional factory. This is why there are small differences in weight between the individual truffles. The Tartufi dolci neri therefore weigh between 14g and 15g.

The finest ingredients and the gentle and slow processing of the raw materials are the secret for the special taste experience of the dark Tartufi dolci neri from Antica Torroneria.
