Nocello is a walnut- and hazelnut-flavored liqueur from Italy.[1] It is produced by the Toschi Vignola s.r.l. company[1] of Savignano sul Panaro, Province of Modena, Emilia-Romagna, Italy. The product originated in Emilia-Romagna.[1] It is labeled "Imitation Liqueur" in the United States and is 24% alcohol by volume. The liqueur, which is colored with caramel, is sweet with a rounded and balanced walnut flavour with vanilla tones. Nocello is similar in taste to Frangelico. In 2004 Nocello was awarded a gold medal at the IWSC (International Wine and Spirit Competition, UK) competition for nut liquors. Similar liqueurs have "been produced since medieval times and used as medicine".[1]

Nocello is distributed in the United States by Classic Marketing.
