○High quality Gelato
Rich and strong taste
We use a production method that minimizes the amount of air added to our gelato.
(In industry jargon, it is said that their gelato has little overrun.)
Stirring the gelato right before eating brings in air that allows the smell to come out.
Stirring also raises the temperature, which makes it easier to taste the flavor.
We make only 1 liter of gelato, because of maintaining the highest possible quality.
That is why you can feel rich and strong taste.
Then, take another bite of gelato and, without swallowing,
allow it to spread through your mouth and melt on your tongue, savoring it as you would a fine wine.
Before swallowing, deeply breathe in through the nose to enjoy the flavor and aroma,
and after swallowing, take another deep breath to experience
a slight variation in the taste and aroma.
