Panettone is truly treasured by Italians far and wide. From Christmas Eve onwards, it’s placed proudly on the table and shared by all. Some dunk it in a frothy cappuccino for Christmas morning breakfast, and others enjoy a soft, sweet slice with a sparkling spumante.

To offer the best of the best, we relentlessly searched the country. And, just when we thought our journey was over, we heard about two special bakeries - Sal de Riso in Minori and Vergani in Milan, both taking their inspiration from the classic recipes and adding exciting new twists. Baked with five-star ingredients.

Come to us for your classic panettone and we promise you won’t be disappointed. It’s exactly how it should be – fantastically fragrant and laden with candied fruit.

And there’s more. Try zesty limoncello, wild berries or boozy tiramisù. But the real star is our dazzling gold panettone – probably the most expensive panettone money can buy, and the perfect centrepiece for a very special occasion.

While panettone is sensational simply sliced, why not get creative in the kitchen too? Bake a panettone and butter pudding, serve toasted with butter and jam, create a marvellous panettone trifle.
