Fabbri Cherries and Panettone The Cherry on Top: Fabbri Amarena Cherries The Fabbri Company of Bologna has been making uniquely delicious cherries in amarena syrup for over a century. Only the best wild cherries are carefully selected and candied in amarena syrup according to Gennaro Fabbri’s original recipe, created in 1905 in the small Emilia Romagna town of Portomaggiore. For ice cream, cocktails, and to serve along side the Fabbri cherry panettone. This jar requires no gift wrapping – perhaps a red ribbon. Fabbri has collaborated with Muzzi Tommaso 1913 to create this delicious, light, rich and moist panettone chocked full of candied Fabbri Amarena cherries. Beautifully hand wrapped with a rustic paper decorated with the iconic Fabbri colors. Mini Amarena Cherry Panettoncino – Cake for one – or Stocking Stuffer size also available.

Wine of the Week
Gaba do Xil Tinto ’19
“After devastating frost in 2017 and killer mildew in 2018, the vintage for the red 2019 Gaba do Xil Tinto from Valdeorras was healthier and the crop was good, save for some hail in specific vineyards during the summer. It was a ripe, healthy and balanced year. This is a young, unoaked Mencía with 13.44% alcohol that fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, where it matured for 12 months before bottling. It’s intensely aromatic and expressive, varietal and with the wild rusticity of the zone. The palate is medium-bodied, with very fine tannins and a soft mouthfeel.”
