This package of Aglione herbs are perfect for the true Italian cuisine enthusiast. This is one of the most traditional sauces for pici pasta in the region around Siena. It is usually made with lots of garlic, tomato, oil and chili peppers. Slightly salty, a bit sweet from the tomatoes, a tad spicy and with a finishing garlicky punch, it is a wonderful sauce. It works perfectly with pici because the blandness of the pasta allows the flavors of the sauce to shine through. With a distinct and exquisite taste, this pasta is bound to please any palate.
About the Brand
In a quest to produce the finest olive oil in Tuscany, the Raffaelli family began to plant their first trees around the end of the 19c and were soon receiving acclaim from all fortunate enough to enjoy, leading to young Enrico’s plans to make their oil available to those outside the region. The methods have remained unchanged for four generations and remain true to their origins of a century ago: the finest olives picked by hand and brought to the presses with twenty four hours, extracted by cold pressing in mills with stone pounders and unfiltered, but stored for eighteen months in a temperature controlled environment to allow natural sedimentation.
Garlic, pepper, salt, parsley, chervil
