Bruno Bressano Agricultural Company.

For over three generations

The History

For over three generations, in Cravanzana and Serravalle Langhe, on the hills of Alta Langa, our three Agricultural Companies have been cultivating Hazelnuts. The fruit we harvest every year, the "Nocciola Tonda Gentile Trilobata," is a high-quality product obtained through the experience in cultivation passed down from father to son. The unique geographical location also imparts properties to the product that make it superior to any other foreign or Italian Hazelnut variety. The amalgamation of our three agricultural companies has given rise to "Terra delle Nocciole," which is exclusively dedicated to processing hazelnuts produced by us into high-quality semi-finished products for gelato makers and pastry chefs. Recognizing that we have a raw material of the highest quality, the goal of "Terra delle Nocciole" is to maintain and enhance this quality throughout all processing stages, providing buyers with the assurance of the product's origin. Our Hazelnut proudly bears the IGP Piemonte label, which, among other things, has undergone a sensory analysis conducted by the Centro Studi Assaggiatori in Brescia, where it was compared to other hazelnut varieties from Lazio and Turkey. This analysis reveals that Piemonte Hazelnuts exhibit a more complex sensory profile and are free of defects compared to the other comparison samples. Furthermore, this profile is even more distinctive in derivative products compared to the raw material. But that's not all. It's important to understand how our hazelnuts, despite being IGP Piemonte (and already recognized as the best), have significantly superior characteristics compared to hazelnuts grown in other parts of Piemonte due to our geographical location. By combining high-quality raw materials with innovative processing methods, Terra delle Nocciole can provide a one-of-a-kind product tailored exclusively to "gourmet" quality seekers.

The product

Transformation

Terra delle Nocciole strives to preserve the quality of its initial product by seeking the best methods and machinery.

Drying

The first phase immediately after harvesting is drying.

Terra delle Nocciole exclusively employs a natural method, sun exposure. We firmly believe that natural and traditional methods, although slower and more labor-intensive, are the best. Therefore, after harvesting, the hazelnuts are cleaned to remove most foreign bodies (residual leaves, twigs, etc.) and left to dry in the sun for 2-3 days. Once the ideal level of dryness is achieved, they are cleaned and sifted, ready to be shelled.

Shelling

Hazelnuts come in various sizes, so they need to be sorted by size to shell them without damaging the inner fruit. After sizing, they are shelled and then sorted again. The second sizing, which occurs after shelling, is crucial for the subsequent roasting phase. It's essential that nuts with the same size are loaded into the roaster to ensure even toasting and avoid burning.

Sorting of Shelled and Sized Nuts

After sizing, the shelled product is carefully and exclusively hand-sorted to remove shell residues, broken nuts, and unsuitable ones (discolored, shriveled). Roasting The product is roasted using infrared rays, bringing it to a temperature of 180°C for a variable time depending on the size (30-45 minutes). Throughout the roasting cycle, the product is kept in motion using rotating fans to evenly expose all nuts to the roasting lamps.

Cooling

After roasting, the product is cooled to room temperature. The cooling process is achieved through forced air circulation through the product, keeping it in motion. This phase is crucial as it must halt the cooking process by cooling the precious oil contained in the hazelnuts, preventing prolonged roasting.

Sorting of Roasted Nuts

The roasted product is once again hand-sorted to eliminate any unsuitable product that may only become visible after roasting. There is a percentage of product that appears healthy before roasting but later takes on a color that makes it visible and allows it to be discarded. This is a phase that not everyone carries out, but in our opinion, it is essential for achieving superior quality, even if it affects the processing time.
