Pizzuta is the most expensive almond in the world. It is also the most delicate variety, blooming in the heart of winter, thriving only at the bottom of hills that are close to the sea. It needs the best soil and full exposure to the sun. The pizutta's incredibly low yield has a key advantage - it concentrates flavors to give the nut incredible flavor.

How to recognize it:
- The shell is hard and smooth with tiny holes and a sharp tip, like the nib of a pen.
- The seed has a flattened ovoid shape.
- The smooth skin has a light, rusty color.



TASTING NOTES:

An intense milky flavor.
Ends with a pleasant, lightly bitter note. The long-lasting flavor is the result of a relatively high essential oil content.



PAIRING SUGGESTED:

Sparkling white dry wines.
