Carluccio’s Christmas Hamper: from Naples with Love

From the moment you step out onto the street and try to cross the road, Napoli is a city that picks you up and takes you with it. Vibrant, bustling and charismatic, this year Carluccio’s has taken inspiration from this energetic city for its Christmas range. Bold and proud, it uses a palette of rich, Mediterranean colours to perfectly present the season’s range of festive food and drink sourced from the best specialist producers across Italy.

The Christmas Hamper—‘Il Massimo’—comes packed with a generous selection of some of Carluccio’s most iconic products, from prosecco and olio di colline extra virgin olive oil to pesto Genovese, carnaroli rice and trofie durum wheat pasta, packed in a statement red box.

Enjoy the hazelnut meringue lightness of the fiocchi di neve and the sweetness of Carluccio’s gianduiotti and milk chocolate coin or the depth and quality of the porcini oil, pappardelle pasta and wild boar ragu. And what would the festive season be without panettone? Made with dried fruit and candied peel and finished with hazelnut icing, this is a version to remember.

Il Massimo contains all of this, along with a generous portion of Christmas spirit, for only £75. And it couldn’t be easier to shop this year with Carluccio’s next-day delivery service. To get the best of Italian food and drink straight to your door for friends, family and colleagues, simply visit
