The Small 101 - Gift Box with Biscotti di Prato and Vin Santo
The Small Gift Box 101 is a great Classic of the Tuscan tradition.
Contains a pack of 500g Prato Biscuits (the so-called 'cantucci' or 'cantuccini' with almonds) and a 375ml bottle of Vin Santo Santa Cristina Antinori.
The Tuscan tradition of consuming I Biscotti di Prato with the liqueur wine typical of the territory (Vin Santo) at the end of the meal, is lost in the past between urban legends and friendly paternalism.
We like to think that it is more than a simple need for conservation and passion for local products.
Soaking the biscuits in the Vin Santo (... or in the wine) allowed them to be able to eat the beloved Biscuits even if they were not baked on the same day; from this use, common in Tuscan homes, a tradition is born, and today it is known throughout the world and proposed on the tables of the best restaurants.
The combination of Antonio Mattei's Biscuits with the Antinori Wines also has a long history. The relations between the two companies have in fact been documented since the 1940s.
