    Product Description

    Weight: 300g

    The Capicollo is an exquisite must-have delicacy to be enjoyed at Christmas time! This gorgeous hand made roll of the sweetest, most tender white figs from the Cilento in Southern Italy has been sweetened with toasted almonds and pistachios. The packaging is original and eye-catching and the aroma and flavour of the figs irrestistible.

    Excellent as a dessert accompanied by an aged marsala or rum. Wonderful warmed in the oven for 5 minutes at around 50 degrees.

    Available in a limited quantity!

    Our producer - Santomiele
    In 1999 Antonio Longo took over his Grandfather's farm near Paestum just south of the Amalfi Coast in the Cilento region of Italy. His dream was to revive the commercial production of a rare, prized variety of fig, the White Dottato fig, which had practically died out. The White Dottato Cilento fig has a dense white pulp that is extra sweet and tender but is difficult to harvest.

    Plain dried figs from Cilento taste wonderful by themselves but Antonio's company 'Santomiele' transforms them into masterpieces. They dry them in the hot Cilento sun on large baskets, fill them with almonds, walnuts and citrus peel, flavour them with spices, soaks them in liqueur, cover them in luxurious chocolate and gift wrap them in fig leaves and bamboo shoots. They create exquisite, unique delicacies that are works of art, only available in very limited quantities and exclusively in the run up to Christmas.

    Armani and Fiat are regular customers, choosing to send Antonio's specialities to their very best clients. Even the Queen is said to be a fan after having been given some as a gift by a Lord!

    Santomiele has gained a reputation across Italy and in the USA, not only for the attractive and unusual packaging, but particularly for the high standard of the figs and amazing fillings.
