Italian Luxury Christmas Hamper
Our Luxury Christmas Hamper is a delightful 22" wicker hamper which we have literally packed to the brim with gourmet food and excellent organic wine. It's full of the post popular Christmas treats including a 1kg handmade panettone, a full-bodied Chianti and of course a bottle of Prosecco!
- Organic Wine Super Tuscan IGT Orma del Diavolo 750cl (13.5%). This outstanding Super Tuscan has been aged in French barriques for 24 months by award winning Tenuta San Jacopo. It has a complex nose of black cherry, dried flowers, and sweet Asian spices. Balsamic and liquorice flavours round out the palate, which is full of sinewy tannins. Intense, full-bodied, with a long fruity finish.
- Organic Vintage Prosecco 75cl. This is a ‘Millesimato’ Organic Prosecco which means that a minimum of 85% of the grapes in the bottle have been harvested in a single year, making this a Vintage Prosecco. ‘Millesimato’ is a term that is generally attached to wines that have attained a certain level of quality and purity. Straw yellow in colour with greenish reflections, Ca del Colle Prosecco has a fruity, fresh and delicate scent. The taste is dry, refreshing and joyful.
- Riccardo Giusti 12 year old Balsamic Vinegar 250cl. This extraordinarily dense balsamic vinegar with a pleasantly sweet aftertaste and can be added directly to all foods as a thick sauce. It is also recommended for barbequed meats and fish, cheeses and fruits, or just on its own.
- Chocolate Chip Panettone 750g. This traditional artisan Italian Christmas cake has been hand made over two days in October in Sicily. Left to rise naturally, it has an amazingly light and fluffy texture and is flavoured with dark chocolate pieces.
- Tuscan Cantuccini Biscuits 150g. These artisan Tuscan ‘Cantucci’ biscuits are light and crunchy and made with roasted almonds and pistachio. A typical Tuscan dessert, said to have been conceived originally in Prato, they are traditionally enjoyed dipped into sweet Vin Santo. They are also great with coffee and tea.
- Truffle Butter 80g. Made with just butter and bianchetto truffle from Aqualagna, this is a delicious artisanal speciality. Wonderful spread on bruschetta, stirred into a bowl of pasta, tortellini or gnocchi, in a risotto or alongside grilled fish and meat dishes.
- Organic Fettuccine with Truffle 500g. Our Fettuccine have been hand made in Campofilone in Italy’s Marche region and flavoured with aromatic, black summer truffle.
