I wouldn’t call the version of Spumoni (or Spumone) served at Athens Kouzzina traditional.  But, all the flavors are there.  A traditional Spumone would have a variety of flavors swirled or layered, then dotted richly with candied fruits, nuts, chocolate, and a hint of spice.  The version at Athens Kouzzina consists of an ice cream base that’s delicately flavored with pistachio dotted with small pieces of candied orange zest, cherries, and chopped pistachios.  No layers or swirls… and no chocolate is present.  If the texture were a wee bit smoother and creamy, we’d be in heaven.  It’s still close to the the best spumoni gelato we’ve tasted in Atlanta.
