Toschi’s specialty, Nocello, is a liqueur made from walnuts and hazelnuts with a delicate and aromatic flavour. During the Middle Ages it was customary to plant a walnut tree when a daughter was born. When she was to be married the walnut tree was cut down and with the wood, as a symbol of happiness and prosperity, her nuptial bed was made. From the nuts of the tree an elixir was made â€“ â€˜Nocello.â€™ The tradition of this specialty liqueur continues and today Nocello has become popular as a desert liqueur. It is delicious on vanilla, chocolate and coffee ice cream. Serve Nocello cold. Toschi Nocello was a Gold Medal winner at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2004.
