This artisan chocolate factory born in the middle of the post-WW2 period in the Torino's "Barriera di Milano" district and immediately managed to carve out a prestigious role among Turinese illustrious chocolate makers.
In 1946, this historic brand began its innovation process, investing in a new production plant in Collegno.
Modern products gradually joined the more traditional recipes, always remaining faithful to an artisan and high-quality production approach.
"Calcagno 1946" is now famous for all those specialities made with "PGI Piemonte Hazelnut" as their distinguishing ingredient: "giandujotti", creamy spreads, hazelnut spreads and "cremini", which are now joined by other products such as dragées, small pralines containing hazelnuts, chocolate covered fruits or cereals and a selection of traditional and spiced bars.
"Giandujotto" is the quintessential end-of-meal treat in the Turinese tradition, before or after a good espresso coffee, depending on one's habits.
"Calcagno 1946" chocolate is recognizable with eyes closed for its distinctive bitter almond note.
