Only with organic Cappelli durum wheat grown in Italy
Parchi della Toscana pasta is a product created by Alce Nero in cooperation with Legambiente in order to convert the land in all Italian parks to organic farming, reducing the impact of conventional farming based on the use of synthetic chemicals and pesticides. Alce Nero organic durum wheat linguine is made using the historic variety of durum wheat dating back to the early 20th century, when Nazareno Strampelli ran experimental tests in fields provided by the Marquis Cappelli, thus obtaining superior grains, including the Cappelli variety. The semolina dough is prepared using spring water from the Alps.
Thanks to its shape, Alce Nero organic Cappelli durum wheat mezze maniche is ideal for capturing sauce on the entire surface, making it suitable for all kinds of dishes.
The packaging of this pasta is made of paper, without use of any plastic. Only water-based inks and glues were used for the printing and closing of the package, without any chemical components.It is recyclable and can be disposed of in paper.
It is our commitment to keep all legal information up to date, but you may find differences from the packaging actually available.

This Cappelli single-variety pasta begins its journey in autumn, when the wheat is sown. The seeds are guaranteed to be pure as they are certified by the SIS, the Italian Seed Society.Once sown, the wheat plants must ripen in the sun for at least six months. It is ready for harvest when the ear is an intense gold colour.
