Gentile: Organic Pasta, Gragnano (IGP)

Gentile: Organic Pasta, Gragnano (IGP)

The Gentile Pasta Factory, founded in 1876, is one of the historic artisan factories that made the city of Gragnano famous throughout the world for its pasta. In the era of modern technologies, Gentile preserves methods of craftsmanship and attention to every detail, from the selection of raw materials to production.

Today Gentile offers the highest quality products, respecting what has made Gragnano pasta so famous: the use of high-quality, 100% Italian semolina wheat and low temperature drying. Additionally there are two elements that make Pasta Gentile unique: the quality of their Senatore Cappelli variety of wheat and the natural air drying using the "Metodo Cirillo."

Their classic shapes reflect typical Neapolitan traditions with cuts like paccheri, mafalde, and bucatini. Learn more by visiting the "Special Features" section of our website or by clicking here.

*Pasta di Gragnano achieved in 2010 the IGP mark (Indicazione Geagrafica Protetta). This community recognition represents the reaching of an important objective for pasta makers, always working with respect and devotion for the entire Gragnano city where the pasta is its own icon.
The EU assigns the IGP mark to agricultural food which are linked to a geographical origin basing on unique characteristics and production phases; this implies the respect of straight production rules indicated in the "disciplinari".
