Slant cut, shallow ridges, considerable thickness: these are the ingredients of this unique shape that lends itself to all cooking techniques. Its distinctive, primeval taste especially shines in hearty dishes.
Khorasan wheat is the ancestor of modern durum wheat, as it originated in the Middle East several thousand years ago. We use it to create a premium pasta with a delicate fragrance of white flowers and freshly shelled nuts. Its taste combines unmistakable hints of pine and macadamia nuts with subtle nuances of edible flowers.
Monograno represents the quintessence of our production. It is made with organic semolina sourced by a single origin and grown only on carefully selected pieces of land, to communicate the distinct character and the truth of these simple, but fragile ingredients. Our Matt wheat is produced in Puglia, and retains the warmth and primordial zeal of its homeland; Kamut® Khorasan, ancient and modern at the same time, comes from a land far away: the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Our Farro (emmer) is rustic and sincere, just like Umbria, where it grows; last but not least, our “newcomer” from Murgia: “Il Cappelli” durum wheat is an unmistakably Italian and vigorous cultivar, straightforward and rewarding.
Monograno is infused with our passion and devotion: the last brushstroke, the final touch that transforms each forkful of this pasta into a tale of its origins and the people who created it. Monograno’s authentic panoply of aromas, flavors, textures, and exceptional responsiveness to ingredients and preparation techniques are an endless source of inspiration, the key to a universe of possibilities, small fragments of happiness in our daily lives.
