A thin section and shallow ridges make these a solid carrier for vigorous sauces, and an amiable support for delicate ones: versatile and robust, Penne Il Cappelli are the key to a joyful tasting experience.
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Stemming from the genius of one of the greatest, yet mostly unknown Italian agronomists, who named it after Senator Raffaele Cappelli, this stubborn and generous wheat embodies the sun of the Murgia region and the veritable, genuine tastes of the bygone century. We combine it with the purest spring water from the Dolomites to create a pasta with a vigorous, wholehearted temperament that is truly Italian. Raw, its aroma is reminiscent of jute and licorice root. Cooked, it exudes the fragrances of fresh farm milk, mashed potatoes and roasted chestnuts. It has the toothsome and lively mouthfeel of buttery breadcrumbs, with an alluring final note of sea salt.
