The process

Our Pasta is produced in limited quantities, using traditional techniques in Gragnano, in the Campania region, the cradle of Italian pasta-making tradition.  The finest durum wheat flour is mixed with the purest water, and the pasta is bronze-drawn and dried slowly for up to 42 hours at a low temperature in static cells. This pasta is the essence of the first courses Italy is famed for.


Durum wheat semolina, water.
Contains wheat.
Contains gluten.



The bronze-drawing process gives the pasta a rough texture, so the sauces cling to it more effectively. The outstanding quality of the semolina used ensures the pasta remains firmly al dente during cooking, with an enviable, genuine taste of durum wheat.

Our advice

Before draining, check that the Penne Rigate pasta is cooked just as you like it. A serving suggestion? Add some Tuna, Olives and cubes of fresh tomato, for an appetizing pasta salad.
