VENEZIANA is like Panettone in that it is a raised cake, made with a mother yeast; this one has candied ginger, candied apricot, 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.
