Our craft pasta ( "Spaghetti", "Penne Classiche", "Spaghettini" and "Maccheroni di Toscana") is made by slowly kneading the best durum-wheats with cold water. The bronze-drawing gives the pasta a rough texture. It is then dried at a " low traditional temperature" (33-36°C) for about 50 hours (depending on the weather).
The result is a tasty and porous pasta which allows the sauces to be absorbed well.
