TASTE AN SICILIAN DESSERT

119.00

Experience tasting a Sicilian dessert.
Inside the SICILIAN EXPERIENCE BOX – DESSERT you will find the best sicilian specialties, expertly selected from the certified or organic crops of small producers in the area.

The Sicilian Dessert Experience Box has been designed for 4 persons and gives you the opportunity to try out some of the region’s varied offerings as a Sicilian would, sitting round a lavishly laid table with friends and family, giving in to the many dulcet temptations of the island. Modica chocolate surprises with its grainy texture and crunchy cane sugar, while amaretti – macaroons – are sinfully delicious, satiny and soft; not forgetting the salty-sweet fragrance and mineral crispness of Sicily’s pistachios… a kaleidoscope of flavors best paired with that inimitable golden nectar, Passito di Pantelleria. Of all Sicilian wines, this may well be the crown jewel, from sun-dried Zibibbo grapes. Legend has it a Carthaginian goddess called Tanit seduced the Greek god Apollo by serving the juice of Zibibbo grapes. We don’t know about Tanit, but modern-day humans had best serve it in medium-sized, tulip-shaped glasses at a temperature of 10-12° Celsius (approx. 50-54° Fahrenheit).

Sicilia_dolce_cioccolato_peperoncino-300x300

MODICA CHOCOLATE IGP WITH CHILI PEPPER

Sicilia_dolce_cioccolato_sale-300x300

MODICA CHOCOLATE IGP WITH MIRROIR SALT FROM BOLIVIA

Donna Elvira (70gr): Crafted according to ancient manuscript recipes found in the convents of Sicily. Mirroir is a variety of light pink to orange rock salt from the Andes mountain chain, so rich in minerals it boasts a mirror (i.e. “mirroir”) effect.
The high altitude and fossil origin ensure Mirroir salt is pure and pristine, with a subtle delicacy that makes the chocolate tantalizingly tasty.

Sicilia_dolce_passito_pantelleria-300x300

“ARBARIA” PASSITO DI PANTELLERIA DOC

Vinisola (500ml): From select, partly sun-dried Zibibbo grapes, this golden nectar with brilliant amber reflections can be either served cool, to pair desserts, or served at room temperature and sipped on its own, as a contemplation wine. Classically vinified, its luscious bouquet recalls ripe and candied fruit and preludes a sweet, velvety and aromatic palate with lingering almond finish.
