Naturally leavened, homemade, oven-baked product.
Like the panettone, my Colomba too stands out for specially selected ingredients and processing technique. The triple dough method needs about 54 hours of leavening to yield a deliciously soft and light product.

Tips for a better tasting: Before consuming it, keep the leavened in rooms with a temperature of 20°/26° for at least a day or heat it slightly in a heat source such as an oven at 40°C. Turn it off and leave the leavened in its bag for half an hour. Before cutting, always remove the cup. Use a wavy blade knife and cut the slices gently. Store at a temperature of 10-12° and away from the sun’s rays.
