Exclusive new product: Benedetto Cavalieri

Bottega Rotolo is now the exclusive importer and distributor of Benedetto Cavalieri Pasta in Australia.

Benedetto Cavalieri is one of the leading Italian family-owned company’s that produces pasta by old-world artisanal methods. The Cavalieri family has been growing durum wheat since the 1800’s and founded the company in 1918 with the establishment of its mill and pasta factory.

 Benedetto Cavalieri Pasta is widely known for its rigorous selection of raw materials, which are grown in purposely chosen fields in the hills of Southern Italy, with its crops being chemical free. The company has also developed a long, kneading process, called ‘Delicate’, which is a slow pressing, drawing and drying process at a low temperature to preserve the nutritional values of the durum wheat, its taste and flavour.

 Another innovative process of the company is its customary practice of drying the pasta using a system called “Metodo Cirillo”, which consists of drying the pasta in special rooms with a hot water heater and a fan.

 The company’s products have won countless awards, making it an essential pantry item!
