From Sorelle Nurzia, this is a popular nougat. The beautiful light green paper is hand-wrapped around a bar of crunchy white nougat studded with Sicilian Bronte pistachios.
Located in Bazzano, in the Abruzzi region of Italy, Sorelle Nurzia was founded in 1835 by Gennaro Nurzia. Gennaro was an experienced distiller and decided to expand his expertise into the realm of confectionery. A turning point for the company came under the stewardship of Gennaro's grandson, Ulisse Nurzia. Ulisse expanded the company's product range and aggressively experimented with new recipes. Until his day, torrone had been a hard candy. However, after much experimentation, Ulisse revolutionized torrone production with the introduction of soft nougat!
Sorelle Nurzia hand-wrapped torrone make beautiful gifts. Most importantly, however, they taste amazing and pair wonderfully with Vin Santo and Moscato d'Asti.
