Rustichella d’Abruzzo, found deep in the Vestine hills, takes its origins from the old pasta factory, Gaetano Sergiacomo. Founded in Penne in 1924, it wanted to conserve the tradition of homemade production, focusing on special and regional shapes to go beyond the boundaries of Abruzzo.
In the family firm Rustichella d’Abruzzo, the best durum wheat semolina is selected and mixed with mountain water with the same care and tradition of the past. The exclusive bronze mold gives the pasta its special coarseness, which makes it better absorb sauces and improve any type of recipe.
The low drying temperature, which takes 40-60 hours depending on on the shapes, preserves the nutritional value of the pasta, and the flavor of the wheat comes across wonderfully during cooking
