Penne Rigate

Only 100% Italian durum wheat semolina goes into our Penne Rigate, made in Gragnano, the home of the Italian pasta-making tradition. They are bronze-drawn to give them that rough surface that helps to retain the sauce, and dried at length in static cells at low temperatures for up to 42 hours to maintain all the flavor of the wheat.

You might not know

Only durum wheat semolina, with around 13% protein, develops more high-quality gluten in the dough, boosting the strength and elasticity of the pasta and its ability to retain a firm bite when cooked.

Peculiar features and aromas

Our Fusilli pasta is made in Gragnano, the cradle of the Italian pasta-making tradition. The particular shape makes them the perfect partner for any sauce.

 

APPEARANCE BEFORE COOKING AND CONSISTENCY

Slightly rough, with an even color tending towards amber, regular in shape. Elastic and firm to the taste when cooked, remaining al dente even if cooked beyond the recommended time.

 

AROMA

During and after cooking, the Fusilli pasta gives off all the delicious fragrance of quality durum wheat dried at very low temperatures.

 

FLAVOR

Full, durum wheat flavor, satisfying for the palate.

Why Gragnano

Gragnano, the home for centuries of durum wheat semolina pasta, owes its success to a number of essential factors: perfect exposure to sun and wind for drying the pasta correctly; the extra-pure spring water and centuries of milling experience, from the knowledge of the semolina varieties to pasta and bread making skills. Our Pasta is made in one of Gragnano’s oldest factories, whose limited production is a guarantee of inimitable quality and flavor.
