Antonio Mattei


Category: Biscuits, Gifts, Tuscany

Type: Biscuits



1858. This is the year Antonio Mattei created his original recipe, his version of an already popular biscuit in the north of Italy. Known worldwide with the name of Cantucci, and the added unmistakable Antonio Mattei blue bag (now with their special Pantone colour!), this is a bundle you don't want to miss.

HOW TO USE 

The best way to experience these biscuits is at the end of a meal, with a small glass of sweet wine. We recommend Vinsanto del Chianti Classico DOC by Antinori. Summer or Winter, they are always great. 

WHY WE LOVE THEM

Crunchy, tasty, and the perfect little treat at the end of your dinner. Also great in the morning with a coffee, or as an afternoon merenda.

Made in the heart of Prato, Tuscany, in the same shop opened by Antonio Mattei in 1858. The original version received a special mention at the 1867 Universal Exposition (World Expo) in Paris, becoming the best sellers in his shop. Also known as "biscotti di Prato" (Prato biscuits) and "cantucci", making Antonio Mattei "Fabbricante di cantucci" (Cantucci maker). We are proud to consider Antonio Mattei a Gold Beetle Certified producer.

Antonio Mattei Cantucci

I have known these wonderful biscuits for 20 years. Ideal with vin santo, delicious with coffee, the Pistachio & Almonds biscotti are my personal favourite — but they are all worth every penny!

Thank you so much Tom for your lovely feedback, and agree on the Pistachio & Almonds.. they are our favourite too!
