The Handmade Chocolate Guido Gobino, the king of chocolate in Turin

Guido Gobino, producer of gianduiotti and artisan chocolate, has become the king of chocolate in Turin and in Italy, able to offer to enthusiasts, experts and admirers a product of absolute excellence.

Where the Gobino Chocolate is born

The history of the Gobino brand began in 1964, when Giuseppe Gobino, following the experience gained in the sector of cocoa refining, made his entry into the company as production director.

In 1980, Giuseppe became the sole owner of the brand, thus starting a research and development project in the field of chocolate and, above all, relaunching the preparation of typical products of the Turin tradition such as Giandujotti and Gianduja cream.

Since the beginning of the 90s, following an important process of restructuring of production systems and processes, Gobino has embarked on a further journey into tradition, in the name of the ancient recipes of the Turin tradition. This is how the Giandujotto Artisan Laboratory was born, which allowed the company to reach the highest quality standards, focusing more and more on raw materials of absolute excellence and a wise mix of technique and craftsmanship.

Gobino, the Italian artisan quality

Guido Gobino excellently represents in full the Italian craftsmanship, which combines tradition with innovation and creativity, a passion for chocolate that leads to the creation of unique products for taste and quality. A quality that is reflected not only in all the products of the supply chain, but also in the design of the packaging. Starting from the processing of cocoa, and moving on to artisanal production characterized by operations carried out only by hand, which include the preparation of ganache and then of coverings and decorations.

Gobino’s handmade chocolate is tested and subjected to quality controls at every stage of processing, in order to ensure its standards of excellence. The research and design of new products is always a process that requires a long and complex processing, starting from a test recipe and, later, tastings and laboratory checks. All this happens thanks to cutting-edge technologies and, at the same time, the craftsmanship of experienced and competent personnel. Up to the packages – from the cases to the bags, from the boxes to the packages – that are entirely manufactured by hand.

Chocolate Gobino, the famous Giandujotto

The preparation of the famous Giandujotti is carried out following the traditional method, which involves the creation of each chocolate individually, in order to make each piece unique. In fact, the extrusion technique is used, as was once done, modelling the dough by hand with special tools. The 10 grams Giandujotto, in fact, comes from the skilful blend of superior quality raw materials, starting from the Piedmont Hazelnuts PGI.

Touring Maximo are still tempered by hand, according to the process that allows you to reach the right degree of consistency, perfectly balancing butter and cocoa. Once ready, the Giandujotti are then wrapped in the appropriate wrapper, printed directly in the laboratory, with the writing and colour customized.

 These delicacies combine the softness of Hazelnut Piedmont PGI to the delights of dark chocolate, which are combined with taste notes of honey, cereals and biscuits of toasted Ecuador cocoa. The Maximo +39 has been awarded with the award of Best Giandujotto in Italy, winning the Premio Tavoletta d’Oro from 2012 to 2017, and is produced in a limited edition from October to March. This delight weighs only 5 grams, and its recipe does not require the use of milk.

Gianduja di Gobino owes its soft consistency to the use of Hazelnut Piedmont PGI, and milk of the farms of the Piedmontese Alps.
