Thanks for the Vin Santo speeling correction, Ursula. As for "Cantucci", I believe that "cantucci" is a brand name of a cookie manufacturer and not the generic name of the cookies themselves.

Steve, interesting question, we used to call them "cantucci", but it might as well be a bran's name. Anyway, it tastes nice, no question.
Any Italians out there, per favore?

Isn't cantucci the generic name for those little biscotti?

For the complete experience you need to have an after-dinner grappa. After a big meal I think that it really does help with digestion. However, it is definately an "acquired" taste. Many of my friends have compared it unfavorably to lighter fluid and drain cleaner.

i agree with last poster. grappa is great if you get the higher priced and better quality ones. the cheaper ones taste like jet fuel. a good grappa will be smooth and have a lingering taste of something like the smell of wet straw. acquired taste yes but once you do its hard to end a good meal without it. bring some home because yoiu cant get the really good stuff here
