At Rivareno Gelato, we use the traditional Italian way of storing the gelato. Gelato is stored in ‘pozzetti’ – stainless steel cylindrical containers deep inside the counter and covered with lids.
Although you cannot see the gelato, there are many advantages to using pozzetti. Gelato is at its best the moment it comes out of the gelato machine. After this point the gelato slowly oxidises and begins to lose flavour and freshness. The pozzetti are critical for the preservation of gelato, keeping it in the best possible state, maximising freshness and taste without the need for any artificial preservatives. This is particularly important since we use such high quality ingredients.
