Passata di Pomodorini del Piennolo del Vesuvio DOP - 1.4lb (650g)


Discover the authentic taste of Campania with this Passata di Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio DOP. This tomato sauce is crafted from the renowned Pomodorino del Piennolo, an ancient and cherished variety native to the slopes of Mount Vesuvio. Known for its oval shape with pointed tips, thick vermilion red skin, and vibrant red flesh, these tomatoes offer a distinctive sweet-tart flavor and robust texture.

The hallmark of these Vesuvian tomatoes lies in their traditional preservation technique known as "al piennolo." Clusters of ripe tomatoes are bound together to form large bunches, which are then hung in well-ventilated areas. This method ensures optimal preservation throughout winter, allowing the tomatoes to develop a unique and delicious flavor over time.

Our Passata di Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio DOP enhances the tomato's exceptional qualities, including its thick skin, strong attachment to the stem, and high concentration of sugars, acids, and other soluble solids. This product is appreciated for its long shelf life without compromising its rich taste and texture.
