Experience the perfect Christmas pairing: artisan panettone and wine tastings at Mercato Metropolitano.

From the most traditional recipes for the “purists”, to pistachio combinations, all the way to those paired with mascarpone and chocolate creams. Mercato’s talented pastry chef, Kristina, will be your guide through this “sweet” experience.

And what’s the perfect companion for panettone? Wine, of course!

In the spirit of the holidays and tradition, Mercato believe that the sweetness of panettone is enhanced when paired with a carefully selected wine–from sparkling to sweet, and red to white.

They have selected three kinds of panettone from Cosaporto and expertly paired them with one of four distinct wines:

  • Traditional Panettone by Carlo Cracco – Panettone signed by Chef Carlo Cracco in its traditional version.
  • Pistacchio Panettone by Tiri – Italy’s most award-winning Panettone, which has won over even the most discerning palates in the industry with its extreme softness, is enriched with a precious Stigliano pistachio filling and a delightful pistachio chocolate coating with crunchy pistachio granules.
  • Traditional Panettone by Antonino Cannavacciuolo Traditional panettone by Chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo, the real star of the Christmas holidays. The sweetness of Christmas tradition finds its place in a soft candied dough.
