Le Nocciole di Alba

in Alba

The company Corilverde Ssa, successor of the historic F.lli Molino farm of Molino Flavio, inherits from him its centuries-old love for the land with the cultivation and production of excellence in the Alba hills of the Mission.

Tradition and innovation come together in these fields that, first orchard and then vineyard, see today the production of hazelnuts rich in history, in which one can almost perceive the fragrance of the fruit and the inebriating taste of the wine.

Thanks to the quality of the IGP certified fruit and the luxuriance of the plants, the company has embarked on a dream: to take care not only of production but also of the transformation of products. Upon reservation it is possible to visit the hazel groves and the processing factory.

Hazelnut creams

Starting from the “old grandmother’s recipes“, which have always brightened the autumn afternoons, the members of the Corilverde (including the same Flavio Molino) have given life to the creams, which after various attempts have reached the desired taste.

Madernocciola, Fondente, Gianduja and Bianca are for now the possible choices, different for ingredients and sweetness to satisfy every taste.

The cultivation

On the hills of Alba, the company personally follows all stages of cultivation.

  • Planting: the creation of the hazelnut fields is perhaps the most delicate phase. Care, constant attention and love towards the earth help the technique and the experience.
  • Fertilization: the company’s philosophy is respect for nature. For this reason they use only natural and controlled amendments.
  • Pruning: pruning helps the plant to strengthen itself, to rejuvenate, to be struck by the rays of the sun, for an even more unique and excellent fruit.
  • Treatments: they limit treatments as far as possible. They avail themselves of the collaboration of qualified technicians for constant phytopathological surveillance.
  • Harvest: the harvest takes place several times starting from the middle of August to allow the hazelnut to reach the right degree of ripeness. The company transforms only hazelnuts from their hazel groves.
