Capalbio is a municipality in the Province of Grosseto, in the Tuscany region of Italy. It borders the following municipalities: Manciano, Montalto di Castro, Orbetello.
The name derives probably from the Latin Caput Album or Campus Albus (White Cape or Field, respectively), due to the white alabaster stone dug in the area. The hills around the commune are part 'Denominazione di origine controllata' (DOC) that produces red, white and rosé wines as a dessert Vin Santo style.
Made with an olive oil-enrichened bread dough and studded with fresh rosemary and sweet sultanas, these delightfully sticky, criss-crossed buns were traditionally served on giovedì santo or Holy Thursday in the Renaissance city.
