Map of Abruzzo

Along the Adriatic on the east coast of Italy, Abruzzo (Abruzzi) fills the market basket with carrots, potatoes, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, figs and plums. There is a significant amount of olive and table grape farming, but somewhat less wine production than you might expect. This sleepy region with abandoned villages may surprise with castles, ski resorts and sandy beaches.

The main olive oil producing areas of Abruzzo are the Valli del Tordino e del Vomano, Valle del Tavo, Chietino, and Conca di Sulmona. These areas are mainly valleys rising up from the Adriatic into the rugged mountains of the region.

Enjoy the unique flavors of the sea with this very special pasta from Rustichella d'Abruzzo, crafted with fine semolina and fresh black squid ink.
A slightly thinner spaghetti—is made with hot and sweet red pepper purées. Chile Pepper adds a dash of spice and a good deal of color to your meal.
Excellent 100% stone ground whole wheat durum semolina combined with pure spring water and extruded through bronze dies. The rough surface holds sauce beautifully.
This special pasta is packed to show the glorious radiatore (radiator) shape. These are a favorite for pasta salad as they gather multiples of delights -- vegetables, cheese, herbs-- in the ridges.
Abruzzo. One of our favorites. Sig. Tommaso Masciantonio crafts this Trappéto di Caprafico Intosso single cultivar oil at his estate in Abruzzo.
Prized for its flavor and health benefits. Enjoy in salads, over roasted meats and vegetables or atop creamed soups. This amazing spice can be your secret ingredient. Hand harvested from tiny flowers, this brings together the flavors of licorice and anise.
Capellini, also known as Angel Hair, is crafted from durum wheat semolina and pure Apennine mountain spring water.
Abruzzo. New to us from a small producer in the Chieti area of Abruzzo, Casino di Caprafico. This very nice new selection is in a generous 750 ml bottle -- and it is gift boxed. The olive cultivars are Gentile di Chieti, Leccino, and Intosso.
