Further Product Details:
Bucatini e Perciatelli IGP-long hollow pasta Pasta from Gragnano, a small hill town located outside of Naples, is extremely different than ordinary pasta. It may be because of the sea air, mountain breezes or traditional methods used, but the pasta from this area is nuttier in flavor and has more texture than normal pasta, which allows it to hold sauces better.
La Fabbrica della Pasta has remained at the top of the twelve remaining pasta makers in the region (down from the original 300), and became the very first pasta factory in the world to obtain IGP (Protected Geographical Origin) certification for its pasta. They are also the first pasta factory in Gragnano to make a strictly bronze drawn artisanal Gluten Free Pasta! Net weight: 500 g/1.1 lb Ingredients: Durum wheat semolina, water.
Hand-painted ceramic filled with Galantino extra virgin olive oil.
The “Fantasia" hand-painted ceramic comes in a variety of colors and is hand-painted by local artisans of the Puglia region of Italy, where the award-winning Frantoio Galantino olive mill is located. It is filled with their delicious authentic extra virgin olive oil. Discover the passion of the Galantino Family, a family that have been masters of olive oil since 1926. They only select the best olives from their groves near Bari (Apulia), near the Adriatic cost, a region that produces more olives than anywhere else in the world. Even today, in this era of automation, all of Galantino’s Ogliarola and Coratina olives are hand-harvested the traditional way. Through cold extraction and strict quality testing, Galantino ensures that their extra virgin olive oil is consistently the best.
