Verrigni Spaghettoro Gold Die Cut Pasta (500g)
This exceptional spaghetti is the only pasta in the world cut from a gold die. It is crafted using the finest durum wheat semolina and pure water from the Gran Sasso Mountains in Abruzzo.
Verrigni is famous for producing superior quality artisanal pastas that are sought out by top Italian chefs. Still using the ancient pasta making techniques, this spaghettoro is cut using a gold die created exclusively for Verrigni by artist Sandro Seccia. This process gives the pasta a special roughness which allows the sauce to cling to it. A rich experience with an intense taste and al dente bite.
Spaghettoro is a unique Italian pasta from Abruzzo; long, thin round noodles similar to a classic spaghetti. The uniqueness of Spaghettoro lies in the way it is created.
Verrigni’s Spaghettoro pasta is cut with a soft gold die, which means the pasta texture has more grooves and a rougher grain, which means more of the sauce clings and grasps to the pasta, allowing for a delicious, generous mouthful. The pasta experience is more intense, more flavorful, the porosity and crunchiness of the pasta really standing out, cooking rapidly, absorbing more quickly and providing for a smoother finish to the noodles.
Verrigni has been crafting artisan pasta since 1898. They use the best durum wheat semolina from Abruzzo, using the pristine waters from the springs at Grand Sasso, and traditional Italian pasta making techniques.
Imported from Abruzzo, Italy, Verrigni is the only gold dyed pasta in the world. Many of the most celebrated chefs in Italy use and appreciate Verrigni becauses of its selection of the finest grains and its use of ancient techniques. This fairly new gold die produced pasta has attracted much attention in recent years. This pasta has a very different consistency than those drawn by bronze die molds. Specifically, the gold-drawn pasta creates a distinct flavor and smell, and a look that is more intensely raw. When cooked, its absorption and swelling are rapid, and it provides a more slippery, smooth, more intense wheat taste and a more yellow color, a beautifully rich experience.
