Ah the panna cotta, one of the most loved spoon desserts by Italians and beyond!
With a delicate and soft taste, panna cotta conquers at the first spoonful, especially when served to finish the meal.

With a simple but effective preparation, this dessert invented in Italy (probably in the Piedmontese Langhe) more than a century ago will bring freshness and lightness to the table. For this reason, panna cotta is an ideal dessert to be served in the hottest periods of the year...and which summer is more suitable than that of 2022 with scorching temperatures?


The idea of ​​Panna cotta with Sagrantino Passito di Montioni wine

During our TOURS to vineyards and olive groves of our farm immersed in the green of Umbria, we at Montioni include a fantastic tasting (based on the package/tour chosen).

During this hot summer 2022 we asked ourselves: which dessert to combine with the tasting of our passito wine (Sagrantino Passito)?
In fact, the passito is a wine that pleasantly accompanies sweet flavors, and in particular cakes with delicate creams with jams or cream.

To satisfy the need for a wine-dessert combination that would help to forget the high temperatures and that would bring out the taste of our Montefalco Sagrantino Passito, we have created this very fresh panna cotta with the flavor of Passito!

After experimenting with the recipe we said to ourselves: it is perfect for tastings within our TOURS!

You may be wondering: how then to prepare this panna cotta al Passito? It is easy to say, follow our personal recipe below!
