Domori & Polo del Gusto
The Polo del Gusto: where "disruptive quality" products are collected
All the realities of the Polo del Gusto are united by a single purpose: to pursue excellence and express it in each product and for this reason they are united by a single concept, expressed by the President of the Polo del Gusto Riccardo Illy as "Disruptive Quality".
Founded in 1997 by Gianluca Franzoni Domori, in a few years it has become the world leader in the production and processing of Criollo cocoa, a very rare variety of cocoa which represents only 0.001% of world production. It was also the first chocolate company to use only fine cocoa focusing on high quality. The first to control the supply chain starting from the plantations located in South America and Central America and to have a proprietary plantation that has allowed it to recover the biodiversity of Criollo cocoa in the field.
The first to rediscover and use an ancient and simple formula for chocolate: cocoa paste and sugar.
Finally, the first to create a Chocolate Tasting Code to discover the infinite shades of cocoa.
Exclusive blends of tea, of different nature and provenience, that are recognised among the most valuable in the world.
Historic French tea house, it was the first company to make tea with natural flavouring. In their laboratory, based in Dreux, the teas are received from the best gardens of Ceylon, India, China, Korea, Vietnam and Japan, as well as from Africa and Brazil.
Experience, creativity and elegance are the values that distinguish Dammann Frères.
A leading company in the sector of jams and candied fruit, it is renowned for its marron glacés and decorative violets.
Offers the best of nature and allows everyone to savour it, discover it and fall in love with it. This is the dream that, in 1972, has led to the creation of Agrimontana, a reality that treats excellent natural raw materials according to the most consolidated artisan techniques: hands, passion and nature are the cornerstones of Agrimontana.
Mastrojanni has been writing history with its wine since 1975, collecting prizes all over the world.
At that time, there were very few starting a wine-growing adventure in Montalcino. Today, thanks to an exceptional terroir and to men who have believed in it for decades, Mastrojanni is one of the Brunello di Montalcino companies most respected by connoisseurs.
