At Christmas, in the Municipality of Acquapendente, there is the tradition to prepare imbriachelle, whose name comes from the glass of wine which is added to the mixture. There are no written documents giving us the opportunity to date exactly the beginning of this gastronomic tradition; however, in the Municipality of Acquapendente there are bakeries managed by elderly people who say they have been producing imbriachelle since 1956, after inheriting the recipes from their fathers, who produced it already at the beginning of the 20th century. Imbriachelle are tapered or donut-size biscuits made with wine and walnuts. The color of the biscuit, from grey to red, varies according to the use of white or red wine. The taste combination between wine and walnuts is peculiar. The recipe has been handed down from generation to generation. It is a "dessert for the poor", prepared to be eaten at the end of the meal with a glass of wine: as a matter of fact, you can dip them into wine to soften them.
