Learning a little Baratti & Milano History:
The famous Caffè Baratti & Milano owes its name to the Baratti & Milano confectioners Ferdinando Baratti and Edoardo Milano. Moving to the Savoy city in 1858, they opened a confectionery and pastry shop in via Dora Grossa 43, now via Garlibaldi , destined to become one of the most renowned brands in the Piedmontese and Italian confectionery industry. Caffè Baratti & Milano soon became a coveted meeting place for the bourgeoisie and intellectuals, so much so that its success grew to the point of receiving the qualification of "Official supplier of the Royal House".

To be enjoyed:
Both a creamy sherry or tawny port would pair nicely with the hazelnut forward flavor of the Giandiuotto. For those who prefer red wine try with a Rioja which also capitalizes on the milk chocolate and hazelnut of this fabulous chocolate.
Truly a phenomenal dessert, this classic Cremino pairs well with a Moscato D'asti if you prefer something sweeter or pairs well with a Petite Syrah if you would rather a hint of warm spice and toasty vanilla which brings out the nutty flavor of the Cremino. A cup of black tea accompanies the Cremino nicely as well in an afternoon rut where something sweet is needed!
