Rustichella D'Abruzzo Linguine
Linguine is one of the classic shapes of the Rustichella d’Abruzzo line. The bronze die and the low temperature drying process make the texture of this kind of pasta perfect for fish-based condiments such as seafood, shrimp and zucchini, or pesto alla Genovese. In the town of Pianella in Italy’s Abruzzo region, artisan pasta maker Gianluigi Peduzzi of Rustichella d’Abruzzo maintains a proud tradition started by his grandfather. He starts by choosing the best semolina from select durum wheat and mixing it with pure mountain spring water. The dough is then shaped using the same hand-carved bronze dies that Gianluigi’s grandfather used a century ago, giving the pasta just the right texture to capture all kinds of sauce. Lastly, slow drying in temperature controlled chambers for at least 56 hours imparts flavor and texture unlike any ordinary mass-produced pasta.
