Antiche Linguine Di Gragnano
Roughly translated as “Little Tongues,” Linguine is a long dried pasta that’s flatter than spaghetti yet smaller in width than fettuccine. This particular Linguine is produced in Gragnano, a hilltop village in South Italy celebrated for producing the finest dried pastas in the world.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Flatter than spaghetti yet smaller in width than fettuccine, linguine is a long ribbon pasta with a slightly oval shape.
Antiche’s Linguine di Gragnano is made of 100% durum wheat flour and fresh spring water sourced from the foothills of Mount Lattari.
Owing to the higher protein content found in Gragnano’s durum wheat, Antiche’s Linguine di Gragnano creates a beautiful canvass for your infinite pasta recipes.
Originating from Liguria, a region close to the salty waters of the Mediterranean Sea, this ribbon pasta serves beautifully with seafood-based sauces. However, it is a fairly versatile pasta, great with pesto-based sauces or any light sauces!
Perfectly al dente linguine takes, on average 11 minutes to cook. We recommend preparing a delicious Linguine alle Vongole with our Ramon Bilbao Sauvignon Blanc Reuda 2018–both as an ingredient and a glass paired with your dish.
The Birthplace of Dried Pasta
Just south of Naples lies a hilltop town known for producing the best dried pasta in the world. Lovingly referred by the locals as Oro di Gragnano–the gold of Gragnano–this little town is celebrated for its air-dried, bronze-extruded pasta.
Recognized by the European Union as a PGI product (“Protected Geographical Indication”), Pasta di Gragnano ensures a strict standard of quality.
Made with only high quality durum wheat, fresh spring water sourced from the nearby Mount Lattari and extruded through a bronze dye, pastas made in Gragnano produce an amazingly al-dente bite and a signature roughness that clings beautifully to any pasta sauces.
Today, only 16 pasta producers are recognized for true Pasta di Gragnano, one of which is Antiche Tradizioni di Gragnano.
Store in a cool dry place.
