Torrone is a traditional Italian sweet made of nougat and nuts. It comes in soft and hard versions, and is very popular during Christmas, but can be enjoyed any time of the year.
While we were visiting Mauro Vergano in his vermouth shop, we asked if Asti was known for Torrone. Mauro lit up and told us that his friend owns the best torrone factory just a short walk away. He offered to take us for a tour, so we returned in the morning on our way to Milan.
