Tenuta Maryamado’s Pasta: five shapes, endless pairings

At Tenuta Maryamado, we rotate our production of ancient grains and organic wheat every year to create a variety of artisanal pastas and other products. 

Depending on atmospheric conditions and soil type, the wheat produces different semolina, which affects the pasta-making process, cooking time, gluten tenacity, and the amount of starch released in the pot.

Our pasta require slightly different cooking times depending on the amount used.  The quality of our artisanal Italian pasta – made with 100% Senatore Cappelli durum wheat – is evident in its unique form and colour. Our shop offers five different forms that can be paired with countless dishes.
