Panforte di Siena IGP by Masoni - 250g
In 1879 Queen Margherita of Savoy visited Sienna. In honor of her visit, an elegant panforte was made in her honor. Differing from the traditional panpepato, this fruit cake has less of the peppery spices, slightly sweeter with vanilla and is finished with a sprinkling of white icing sugar. This white panforte is the one still sold today.

In 2014 Panforte from Siena obtained the PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) European designation of quality label.

Originally a Christmas pastry, Panforte is now enjoyed year-round by Italian cuisine enthusiasts around the world. Serve a thin wedge after dinner with coffee or your favorite dessert wine.

The Masoni family have been baking exceptional sweets for over 130 years in Colle Val D’Elsa in Tuscany, Italy in the province of Siena. Their traditional pastry recipes from Panforte to Ricciarelli have been handed down for generations and today they remain known for their use of simple, high quality ingredients to produce these Italian favorites. Treasured across the Val d'Elsa, we are pleased to bring to you the inimitable flavors of Siena.
