“Colomba” is the Italian word for “Dove”, a traditional symbol for peace, seen often during the Christmas holiday season.  In this case, Colomba refers to the shape of the traditional Easter cake, which is found on Italian tables in Italy and around the world. Our Colomba are made by Albertengo, an Italian company with a long-standing reputation for using only the finest raw ingredients with no additives or preservatives. Their beautiful packaging speaks for itself and lends itself beautifully for gift giving.

There are many legends surrounding the use of a dove shaped cake at Easter.  One of them tells about the people of Milan locked in battle with Emperor Frederick Barbarossa.  Just after Easter, the tide turned in their favor just after three doves flew from a nearby church.  The Milanese have celebrated their victory ever since.

Like Panettone and Pandoro , Colomba is a leavened, enriched bread.  This bread is made from flour, butter, eggs and, depending on type, various kinds of candied fruit such as candied orange peel.  It is then covered with an almond glaze and decorated with whole almonds and sugar.

The Colomba Classica is the most traditional. It is rich in raisins and candied citron, then covered with Piedmont hazelnut IGP icing, sugar and almonds.

Each Colomba Classica by Albertengo contains 1K or 2.2 lbs.
