PLEASE NOTE ~ NOTA BENE
Our panettone shipment from Italy was 6 weeks late due to the west coast port crisis. This will effect our ability to process orders to be delivered in time for Christmas. We expect that orders normally processed in 48 hours may take 3-5 days plus 2-4 days transit time west coast, and 6-7 days east coast.
VENEZIANA is like Panettone in that it is a raised cake, made with a mother yeast; this one has candied ginger, candied orange peel and raisins, that have been plumped in ALPIANE, the passito wine made from Orange Muscat ( Moscato Fior d’Arancio) grapes grown on the Vignalta Estate. This wine has been the object of several honors of late, Best Muscat of the World in 2014 and a Tre Bicchieri award in 2015. Since Veneziana is also a traditional cake eaten all year in Venice, Veneziana all’Alpiane, should be available all year. The difference of Veneziana from Panettone is that Veneziana is a little less buttery than Panettone. This first production is limited. It comes wrapped in orange colored paper, evoking the grape’s name, with a white ribbon bow.
