Albertengo Sorrento Lemon Panettone - 1 kilo (2.2 lb - large) - Italy
The New York Times choice
[Sorrento Lemon Panettone] .... from Albertengo arrived too late for inclusion on last year's list, but I'm still smitten. It is soft and buttery, and its candied lemon replaces the conventional raisins and candied citron.
-- Marian Burros in the New York Times
This hand-wrapped package tied with a shimmering gold ribbon contains one of the most delicious panettones we've ever tasted.
This Sorrento Lemon Panettone is from Albertengo, 4th generation baker and master panettone maker.
Quantities are Limited this year
BEST EVER!!! from Nancy
Do NOT hesitate to purchase this Lemon Panettone!!! I LOVE Lemon Panettone and Sorrento Lemon Panettone-Albertengo is THE BEST!! The luscious flavor is so lemony, the texture is soft and moist and the candied fruit is soft and chewey. I will buy no other Lemon Panettone as I've found the best! I've ordered 4 this year (2010). I intended to give a couple as hostess gifts but I'm re-thinking that idea, ha ha ha.
Oh, they freeze well too!!
Pre-order NOW, do not hesitate or it will be too late and you'll have to wait another year!
One of the Most Delicious Things You'll Ever Taste from Michael
Unlike a traditional panettone that is studded with raisins and candied citron, this ethereal panettone is made with lightly candied Sorrento lemons, and I swear that you can almost smell the heavenly scent right through the wrapping. Light and buttery, soft in texture, it will melt in your mouth, and the aroma and flavor of the Sorrento lemon will drive you to distraction.
It is the perfect dessert for that holiday feast or open house. Serve it with some espresso or Vin Santo, and Buon Natale.
