All our raw materials are organic and Italian. We do not use any kind of aroma, preserving the authentic taste of the best local ingredients. Even the spring water, coming from the Antola Nature Park, contributes to obtaining a natural and genuine product.
Dried at low temperature
A long, natural drying process is key phase in quality, artisan pasta production. Being patient and allowing the pasta the time it needs to retain all the flavor and organoleptic properties of the wheat, whilst guaranteeing that classic al dente bite that artisan pasta is famous for.
The extraction through bronze dies is one of the major characteristics of authentic artisan pasta. It gives our pasta that distinctive roughness and porosity that allows the flavor to sink in and the sauce to meld perfectly to it.
Always with natural, organic and Italian ingredients
