Centellino Selection | Centellino decanter & food products from Tuscany: coffee, cereals, legumes, bitter liqueur and homemade pasta.
This is the most consumed format of the large “penne family”, which includes penne lisce (smooth penne), mezze penne (short penne), as well as many other formats, developed in time by the creativity of pasta makers.
It owes its name to its diagonal and pointed tips. We must thank Giovanni Battista Capurro, a pasta maker from Genoa, who in 1865 invented and patented a machine that was able to cut pasta uniformly and diagonally, in pieces from 3 to 5 cm (1.18 to 1.96 inches), without crushing the tips.
It is perfect for any occasion, and goes well with any sauce that taste and creativity may suggest.

The semolina with which our pasta is made comes from the milling of cereals that are grown exclusively in Tuscany, and that are cultivated with traditional methods, such as crop rotation, and other agronomic practices aiming to respect both soil and environment, essential prerequisites for a high-quality product.
The semolina is selected with special attention to the quality rather than the quantity of gluten it contains, in that gluten represents the major part of the proteins that are present in pasta.
Our pasta is made in small amounts, and is the product of accurate craftsmanship: a dough made with excellent ingredients; bronze extruders (perforated bronze plates that cut and shape the pasta) that guarantee its correct roughness; slow drying, (drying time varies according to the pasta format) at low temperature (between 30 and 35° C / 86 – 95° F).
