Leonardo Di Vinci hired a young widow to pose as the Madonna for his church fresco in Saronno, Italy. As a gift for the honor, the widow created a special drink by steeping the skins of locally grown almonds in brandy. Centuries later, the combination now called Amaretto continues to captivate. We’ve blended our dark chocolate ganache with the subtle notes of brandy and almonds and wrapped it with dark chocolate. Our tribute to the widow of Saronno.
