[500gm]
$11.90

 Penne Rigate, the slender  tubular pasta, is prized for its wonderful versatility and its ability to absorb and retain sauce on its surfaces, inside and out. The ends are cut on a diagonal and are like tiny scoops that hold sauce.  Penne Rigate also has a rough exterior, which further enhances it's sauce holding ability 

Pasta production began in the Fabbri Factory over 100  years ago, since these humble beginnings in Chianti,the family has maintained it’s attention to detail and quality.

The wheat used in it’s production is selected by the “Agricultural Consortium of Siena”, assuring that a constant standard is maintained each and every batch and each and every year.  The wheat is blended to enrich the final product and ensure high gluten content and rich ripe grains


The facility is still located at it’s original place, using traditional methods based on todays technologically advanced  knowledge.  The semolina dough is processed on a press constructed in Pistoia in the 1960’s.  The machine kneads and draws-out the semolina without exceeding 38 degrees C. This temperature is never exceeded even in the drying room, where the pasta dries for 3-6 days. This is a contributing factor to the flavour and texture of the pasta. When a dough is worked at higher temperatures and dried quickly, it becomes hard and brittle and has little taste or texture remaining. This is what very large commercial producers do, and this is why the Fabbri pasta has so much taste and a wonderful texture. Test a commercial brand up against this pasta and you will notice the difference.  


 Bronze extrusion die stamps shape the pasta and produce a surface that is rough, encouraging seasonings and sauces to cling to the pasta with ease
