Dg3 Dolciaria Srl
In the heart of green Irpinia, at the foot of Mount Partenio, famous for Montevergine’s Sanctuary, DG3 Confectionery was born, forerunner of local production of typical sweets.
For 3 generations, the great Sir Nicola Di Gennaro, handed down with great respect for tradition, first to his son Sabino and then to his grandchildren Caroline, Nicola and Adriano, the recipes for Nougat, Chocolate, Crunchy, Pralines, Biscuits and Easter Eggs. They all contributed to create an indissoluble bond between the sweet’s tradition and modernity, and between the ancestor’s wisdom and the ability to innovate of his successors. It all began in postwar period, when sir Di Gennaro started to produce, in Ospedaletto D’Alpinolo, using the local products created the famous “Cupeta”, mixture of honey, egg white and hazelnuts, and be continued manufacturing the “Priest’s Chestnuts”, the “Andrite” avellane hazelnuts. The delicatessen were an instant hit with the pilgrims that reached the Montevergine’s Sanctuary.
