Emidio Pepe Pasta, naturally made organic Pasta, 3 types, Spaghetti, Penne, Mezzi Paccheri. For more than 50 years at Emidio Pepe, they have been carrying out an agricultural project that tries to enrich the soils and let themselves be enriched in turn by the enormous vital energy that Nature exudes every day. They view themselves as having a responsibility to contributing to the biodiversity of the vineyards and the surrounding countryside.
To ensure a substantial return of organic matter to the soils, they have put in place a system of crop rotation of the parcels surrounding the vineyards. The idea is to feed diversity, host multiple crops every year, stimulate the proliferation of indigenous yeasts, inhabit a local fauna, and feed people with foods that are healthy and part of an agriculture project.
With this in mind, Emidio Pepe launched their own dry Emidio Pepe Pasta. As with everything they do, the aim is to produce the best, the highest quality and the most delicious. This has been achieved with the Pasta as well. They make the Pasta with the Senatore Cappelli variety, an ancient durum wheat, capable of growing without chemical treatments and extremely resistant to atmospheric agents. The wheat is planted all around the vineyards, the ears reach two meters in height and have a much lower yield than other types of wheat. This yields a Pasta of very high nutritional value and quality. It is quite simply the best dry Pasta you will ever taste.
Our Pasta was born from a simple aim: to feed our family with healthy, untreated, nutritional wheat. We approached the “Senatore Cappelli” variety, an ancient durum wheat, capable of growing without chemical treatments and extremely resistant to various atmospheric agents. Planted all around our vineyards, the ears reach two meters in height and have a much lower yield than other types of wheat and this makes it bearer of great aromatic and nutritional complexity. After several improvements, we managed to obtain a product that we feel like sharing with you, to bring to your tables what has now become a symbol of Casa Pepe.
