Cappelli wheat is a rare strain of durum wheat discovered at the turn of the last century by one of Italy's most outstanding scientists Il Cappelli. Wheat is grown in organic fields in Puglia. In combination with the purest spring water from the Dolomites, Il Cappelli is pasta with a vigorous, wholehearted temperament that is genuinely Italian. Raw, its aroma is reminiscent of jute and liquorice root. Cooked, it exudes the fragrances of fresh farm milk, mashed potatoes and roasted chestnuts—sweet buttery breadcrumbs with a lovely final note of sea salt - delicious and lively.
The Celts, Egyptians, and Etruscans used this type of wheat thousands of years ago. Farro pasta (Triticum Dicoccum) emits a distinct scent of fresh hazelnut and grilled aubergine. It has a firm and slightly crunchy feel reminiscent of bread crusts, a creamy peanut butter flavour and a mild jujube aftertaste. Farro is nutritious pasta full of proteins, vitamins A, B, C, E, mineral salts and is an excellent source of fibre, antioxidants and polyphenols. In addition, Farro pasta is very easily digested, even by those who have difficulty with other wheat products.
