This beloved Italian favorite is a swirled fusion of full-bodied, dark Belgium chocolate, Italian pistachios and Fabbri Amarena cherries from Bologna, Italy. This festive crowd-pleaser is a vibrant spectrum of flavors and colors alike.
The treasured nuts that grow in the volcanic soil of Bronte, Sicily account for less than 1% of the world’s pistachio production and are so highly valued they have been granted government protection. Harvested only every other year and entirely by hand, they impart intense flavor to our gelato.
The story of the Fabbri Company began in 1905 when Ferrara-native Gennaro Fabbri and his wife Rachele took over an old general store in Portomaggiore, which was in close proximity to a wild black cherry orchard. One day, Rachele picked the cherries and slowly cooked them and semi-candied them in copper pots. She transformed the cherries into a wonderfully delicious treat that soon became known as the Amarena Fabbri.
Made in small batches using the highest quality ingredients, our Belgian chocolate is considered among the best in the world. Its superiority comes from the fact that the integrity of the ingredients and processes haven’t changed much in more than 100 years.
