Summer is not summer without gelato! 

In this post we will take you on a journey through the best gelaterie in Italy according to the prestigious Guida del Gambero Rosso

This is a sector that has survived the recent pandemic, with gelato artisans making use of the extra time to rethink and refine the balances of flavours, the ingredients and their origin so to wholly satisfy each customer, today more than ever. 

And so, the great masters of gelato have taken the opportunity to go back in time, often rediscovering the pleasure of working with flavours from the past coupled with a new awareness that has led them to painstakingly focus on the selection of ingredients, from milk to chocolate, from biscuits to hazelnuts, from salt to candied fruits, emphasising local producers in the name of a gelato that is tasty as well as healthy and sustainable. Not only that, some of them have happily encroached into the world of patisserie and chocolate making, creating intriguing combinations and profitable exchanges among artisans. 

The flavour of the year? Mantecado, a historical vanilla cream with orange sauce and dark chocolate flakes.  Below are all the details of Gambero Rosso’s 2021 Guida Gelaterie d'Italia.
