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.

Capellini, also known as Angel Hair, is crafted from durum wheat semolina and pure Apennine mountain spring water.
Bartolini's Ceci are also known as Chick Peas and Garbanzos. We find that the flavor in these dried beans, when cooked, has much more depth than the canned versions.
Bona Furtuna.... is a new discovery from Corleone, Sicily. Fennel Pollen is often paired with roasted pork. Enjoy in salads, over roasted meats and vegetables, or atop creamed soups.

We are excited to present this new selection from Abruzzo, Sabbia. The name translates as sand, and the olives for Sabbia are grown near the coast in the province of Teramo. The seaside influences this gem with bitter tones and slight spiciness.
