Nino Marino and Vincenzo Longhitano were only 20 years old when they founded their confectionery business in the Sicilian town of Bronte. Fifteen years later, their panettones and spreads are still made by hand, with local ingredients such as green pistachios from Bronte (PDO), following traditional methods.

History and anecdotes
Green pistachios from Bronte, a variety protected by a designation of origin, are grown at high altitude on the flanks of the Etna, Europe's tallest active volcano. Considered to be Italy's pistachio capital, the Sicilian town of Bronte dedicates 80% of its territory (equivalent to 3,000 hectares) to growing this nut. Pistacia vera trees only bear flowers every other years and produce between 5 and 15 kg of pistachios, which are harvested by hand.
Bronte green pistachios PDO 65%, sugar, milk powder, extra virgin olive oil, non-hydrogenated vegetable fat (sunflower oil, cocoa butter), emulsifier: soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavours, natural colouring (E141).
Keep away from heat and humidity.
Bronte pistachio specialists Vincente owe their success to this tiny nut growing on the steep volcanic rock slopes of the Etna, in Sicily, since ancient times. It was the first Arab colonizers who progressively perfected and refined its cultivation. Vincente’s products owe their exceptional quality to carefully selected raw ingredients, to carefully crafted details and to jealously guarded secret recipes!
