Learning more about Baratti & Milano chocolates:
Gianduia is a sweet chocolate spread containing about 30% hazelnut paste, invented in Turin during Napoleon's regency (1796–1814). The delicate taste of Gianduiotto Baratti & Milano has a surprising history. It was born in the mid-1800s, when the continental blockade imposed by Napoleon had made cocoa as precious as gold. The idea of combining cocoa with a home fruit, the hazelnut, immediately proved to be brilliant: and in 1865 the first "Gianduia", which soon became "Gianduiotti" with their unmistakable inverted boat shape.

To be enjoyed:
Both a creamy sherry or tawny port would pair nicely with the hazelnut forward flavor of this particular chocolate if serving as an after dinner affair. Also pairs well alongside a red wine with a hint of spice such as a Petite Syrah or for a mild blend choose a Dolcetto, Nebbiolo or even a Rioja blend. For a different setting pair alongside a cremoso or with a frosty glass of cow's milk or oat milk.
