Collection: Gingerbread Di Siena

Born of medieval legends

The affinities between Panpepato and Panforte are so many that for a long time the misunderstanding that they were the same thing spread. They actually have a lot in common, starting with the origins. It is said, in fact, that it was Sister Ginevra who gave life to this traditional dessert when, locked up in a convent for an impossible love, in order to prepare the panmelato she heard the voice of her beloved from the window and ended up, by mistake, with overturning a jar of pepper on the dough. Today, Panpepato is a pride of the Sienese confectionery tradition made with 17 ingredients as many as the city districts. Try the traditional version of Nannini.
