The dough is left to rest before processing, so the proteins of the durum wheat semolina can develop and the pasta to contain their special aroma.The dough made from durum wheat semolina and water is pressed slowly and with high pressure through bronze perforated discs using the traditional method. The strong pressure gives the pasta a high density, which is what makes it outstandingly resistant to cooking and biting. Gentle drying at low temperatures preserves important vital substances and flavors.
