Organic Durum Wheat Daisies "Senatore Cappelli"
Pack of 500 gr.
Senatore Cappelli is a durum wheat cultivar obtained by the geneticist Nazareno Strampelli at the beginning of the twentieth century, thanks to his experience and various experiments; this variety of wheat was dedicated to the Abruzzese Marquis Raffaele Cappelli, Senator of the Kingdom of Italy, who in the last years of the nineteenth century had initiated the agricultural transformations in Puglia and supported Strampelli in his business. Cappelli is still grown after almost a century in particular in southern Italy (Basilicata, Calabria, Puglia, Sardinia) and has become the symbol of "gourmet pasta", given its perfect cooking and consistency; it is currently used for the production of pasta, bread, pizza and niche and superior quality products, often Bio.
