Prized Italian Dottato Figs from Calabria

They're baaaack! Calling all fig fanatics—Colavolpe Montagnoli Baked Figs are the pinnacle of figgy delights. Succulent and sweet, with hints of orange, clove and cinnamon, they seduce with a luscious fig taste and texture.

The Colavolpe family has been crafting the finest fig delicacies for over three generations (many of you fig enthusiasts might relish in their panettone come the holidays!). They use local Calabrian varietals that flourish in the area, growing plump under the Mediterranean sun.

Their Montagnoli baked figs start with the prized Dottato fig, hand-harvested in the last hot days of summer when their flavor is the sweetest and most concentrated. The freshly picked figs are then set out on large mats to dry naturally in the Southern Italian sun. When they reduce to a third of their original size, the dried figs are then simple in a delicately spiced syrup and baked until perfectly glazed.

Fun fact: The syrup recipe is a closely-guarded family treasure. In fact, each of the three Colavolpe children has been given only a third of the recipe, a canny parental maneuver to ensure that the family works together in maintaining this legendary tradition.

This product is packaged in-house.

Wow! Absolutely the best dried figs!

The packaging surprised me --was not expecting them to be vacumn packed, but wow the figs are absolutely amazing. Soft, moist, wonder delicate flavor -- sweet but overly sweet. I agree with the other reviewers -- these it will be hard to limit how many figs you eat at a given time. If you like 'dried' figs, you will love these. Definitely worth the money -- will purchase again.

To fig or not to fig, this Is the answer!!!

Amazing! I could not believe how delicious these were. If you like figs you will love these.

can't believe I ate it all

I bought these (the first time) to give as a gift. Ate the whole bag. Bought them (the second time) to use in a dessert. Ate the whole bag. That's the negative part of my review. On the positive side, 500 grams of figs is a lot of figs!
